In April we travelled to Morocco via London. The Muslim culture and history was ever-present; some of it highly impressive, other bits strange and challenging to our western 'sensibilities'. Similar to Nepal, but little further developed (Morocco has roads!), there is still a large population living subsistence lifestyles, and these areas had a certain idyllic atmosphere about them reminiscent of a simpler times when families worked together in the fields. We spent some time wandering through the Berber villages in the High Atlas Mountains, camel-trekking across Saharan dunes, and hiking through fields of marijuana in the Rif mountains (yes, fields and fields of the stuff!).
