morning sky

Had the pleasure of catching this scene unfold before me as our bus sped past on its way from Chefchaouen to Meknes.  Morocco’s landscape changes drastically from one part of the country to the next and this several hour drive, especially made early morning, reveals a soft side that can easily be overlooked.  If you ever get the opportunity to travel Morocco, wake early and enjoy this ride.  It’s one you won’t regret.

 

medicine man

Healers come in all forms and from all walks of life. MD’s, Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Medicine Men, Spiritual Healers, this list can go on and on. I’m a strong believer that the healing depends more on the person being healed, rather than the form in which the healer is using.  During some time spent in Morocco, I came across this man who, humbly enough, called himself a Medicine Man.  He would sell his potions, remedies and charms to locals and foreigners alike.  He would say, “whoever believes, can be healed”.  This man brought a magical energy to Djeema El-Fna square in Marrakech.
