On the road again
My time in Chefchaouen has come to a close. I predicted that this would be the most solitary leg of my trip, yet I could not have been more mistaken.
Instead of trudging around this beautiful region in the Rif Mountains alone, I was lucky to enjoy the company of some wonderful people.
I hiked, had tea, and was treated to lunch with a couple from Australia who have purchased a home in Chefchaouen.
I also chilled, ate multiple tagines, and climbed a mountain with three Australians I met at my hostel. I couldn’t have asked for better company these last few days.
Now I have begun an epic trek to my next destination, Tata, to meet up with my Canadian and Moroccan friends associated with Amis des Ecoles (the Moroccan NGO I have worked with.
This journey involves a four hour bus ride from Chefchaouen to Fes (which has just begun), a four hour train ride from Fes to Casablanca, and finally a 13.5 hour overnight bus ride from Casablanca to Fes.
While I don’t look forward to the distance I have to cover, I am excited to see so many familiar faces and be back in a part of Morocco that I really feel connected to.
