Surviving Ramadan

Mon, 15 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [192]

Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting from sunrise to sunset, falls inconveniently in July this year, when the days are longest.  Followers of “the one true faith” refrain from eating, smoking and drinking even water, which is especially ... Read more >

Marrakech

Sat, 13 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [161]

The bus from Essaouira to Marrakech was most definitely not the Marrakech Express that Crosby, Stills and Nash sang about.  It stopped for ever Abdel, Hassam and Fatima along the way and ended up taking four hot, non air-conditioned hours.  ... Read more >

Essaouira

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [166]

Essaouira was one of those "because we're here" stops, with nothing really special to see.  In fact, compared to other places we visited, Essaouira is modern.  It was built in the 19th Century on a French plan so the medina is less of a maze.... Read more >

Oualidia

Wed, 10 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [242]

We’re spending a couple of days in Oualidia, which is on the way to Essaouira, which is on the way to Marrakech, which is . . .     Teamwork Oualidia is a tiny fishing village on the Atlantic, so tiny that there is no dock.... Read more >

Rabat and El Jadida

Mon, 8 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [350]

Train travel in Morocco is a giant step up from taking the bus.  Of course you pay more (especially for Premiere Classe) but the coaches are more comfortable and air-conditioned.  Schedules can be a bit of a mystery to non-French speakers but ... Read more >

Meknes and Volubilis

Sun, 7 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [201]

The tourist office in Meknes was closed on Friday afternoon - almost everything else was too, either because of the holy day or the heat - so we never found a map of the medina.  Rather than wander aimlessly we waited for the temperature to drop ... Read more >

Fri, 5 Jul 2013 | By magreb | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

I hope that I will not wrong if I write an informal letter. I admit, it is difficult to write about yourself, especially when you are competing and when you are supposed to be outstanding. What I appreciate in my own being is the constant wish to be everywhere, ... Read more >

A 'place' I have visited

Fri, 5 Jul 2013 | By mikeambach | Flickr Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

I don't get bored. I get curious. At 18 I was bitten by the travel bug in Southeast Asia. I remember the smallest details, how every sight, sound and taste opened me to a larger world. Learning, I realized, is a matter of being open to new experience.... Read more >

Fri, 5 Jul 2013 | By gennasoso | Flickr Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

For many years I have been photographing as I travel, composing and capturing fleeting moments as the world passes me by. Only recently I began to really question my motives as a photographer. What is it about the photographic medium that drives me to ... Read more >

Photos: Desert

Fri, 5 Jul 2013 | By andrealoria | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

- For a Saharawi the word "desert" doesn't mean anything, I need to know what desert it is - tells me Simo Mohamed - I can live in an erg or a reg, not in a hammada: the word itself, "hamid", means "death".

Fez

Thu, 4 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [188]

We were glad to arrive at Fez after six hot and dusty hours on the bus from Tétouan.  The bus was better than a school bus – barely – with no air-con and the one-position seats.  But the splendor of the Riad des Remparts ... Read more >

Tétouan

Tue, 2 Jul 2013 | By vagabondstoo | Views [242]

Tétouan, a mere hour bus ride over the Rif Mountains from Tangier, hasn’t yet been “discovered” by tourists.  It’s a place where real people live real lives, where the various souks in the medina serve the needs of ... Read more >
