Our Morocco (United States, 03:07)

Directed by: Paulo Wenceslao

My wife and I travelled to Morocco for two weeks. We started in Marrakech and travelled north to the port city of Tangier. This country is extraordinarily unique and exotic, but it certainly wasn’t an easy travel. Spending nearly 30 hours in a jeep and 15 hours in a train takes a toll, but along the way we saw some of the most beautiful, jaw-dropping landscapes and the wide array of peoples and cultures. We navigated through the labyrinth medinas filled with shouting salesmen, young boys badgering to help “guide” us through the dizzying maze, and cats. Lots of cats. We sipped on mint tea and dined on tajines and omelets. We saw goats in trees, roads covered by herds of sheep, and donkey-riding children. We spent nights in the Sahara desert, a sandy wonderland and Chefchaouen, a blue city carved into the Rif Mountains. This short film is only a glimpse of our trip. This is Our Morocco.
