Manificient Morocco

It was a rather hectic five days in Morocco, but well worth the time and pace.  There is so much to see in this country that is so different from what one normally experiences in Europe or Asia. The people were friendly and the food was delicious.  I fell in love with Harira, a Moroccan soup. It is my hope that these images somehow capture the beauty and mystery of the cities of Tangier, Meknes, Fes, Asilah, and the Roman Ruins of Volubilis.

The Cave of Hercules, located just outside Tangier, shows an impressive reverse silhouette of Africa through the rocks.
