Moroccan Dreams

Morocco is one of my favorite places in the world. It is gorgeous, the people are lovely and warm and there is something intriguing about desert life. I love the Moroccan style houses with their colorful woven rugs and ornate tile designs, yet it has a simplicity about it that's very calming.

I was lucky to visit twice, to enjoy the souks in Marrakesh and get lost in the streets of Fez - and the second time slept in the desert and I watched the sun rise slowly over the sand dunes, the sun's rays spreading out, hitting the dunes and turning the sand a bright, deep golden color. Honestly it was one of the most beautiful things I've seen. And the best part was that I shared it with my sisters :)

Alright let's get to awesome Moroccan food -

Breakfasts Moroccan crepe/fried bread with either honey or jam, maybe cheese, and olives (lots of olives) and an egg.  Also let's not forget a coffee or mint tea, a staple in Morocco. If you go there, always take someone's offer of tea and sit down and make a friend.

This a chicken Pastilla, pastry dough filled with chicken and almond and sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar. Surprising combination and so good!

 Ahh Tagines - lamb with prunes above, veggie couscous below.

Here's to lots of travel dreams and better yet, of real travel experiences in the future!
