There is something about road trips that I find so fascinating. For a while I couldn't fathom why I like long road trips. Then recently, it clicked to me. When I was growing up, we hardly traveled at all. On those rare times that we were traveling to the big city (which was 3 hours bus ride away) I would have my face plastered on the window looking out at the scenery. I loved seeing everything that is on the road side from big coke bottles to people going about their daily work in the field.
Thus, when this part of the tour came about, I probably was the only one excited. I know not many people can sightsee all day long. I could not contain my excitement. It is also this reason why I had so many photos on this long road trip.
I noticed that there are murals on fences and walls of schools. I first saw them while the train was traveling from Rabat to Casablanca on the first day.
A UN climate change conference was held in the country the past year. The sign was still there.
The storks were also sighted at a small town. They took over the roofs of the houses, even the chimneys.
Look at this impressive stork nest. Let's hope no strong wind blows this off the roof.
Near Ifrane we passed by this curious resort/camping site.
As we continued through the Atlas Mountains, we passed through an area where monkeys inhabit the neighborhood. Tourists, local and foreign, stop here to take photos with the monkeys. We stopped a bit to look at the monkeys, but we did not go down. There were plenty of monkeys going about being naughty taking tourists possession. One monkey was still long enough for me to photograph it.
This is my entry for this week's OUR WORLD TUESDAY.
