Location: Marrakech, Morocco

We woke up early to get ready for our three-hour journey to Marrakech. After a long drive to the city, we arrived and visited the prime minister’s palace. After a tour of the palace, we were taken to a local food joint where we ate lunch. We then made our way to the main souk, where we learned about many of the spices and natural medicines they make. We then got free time to explore the city of Marrakech. After our free time and dinner in Marrakech, we got back into the vans and drove up into the Atlas mountains to the camping site, where we spent the night. When we arrived, it was quite dreary and rainy, but we were soon happy to find hot showers and comfy “real” twin-sized beds! Attitudes are at an all-time high!
