Tangier, Morocco | A Travel Photo Essay

Before arriving to Spain, what I knew of Morocco mainly consisted of desert scenery, Berber hoods-men, Indian Jones-esque alleys littered with dates and monkeys, as well as cheesy screen outtakes from Casablanca. I still have A LOT of the country to get through, and I know its food, colors, smells and mystery will keep drawing me back, showing me the truth behind all of my previous understandings, or misunderstandings.

This is a compilation of my two trips to Morocco in 2011, which I spent predominately, along the coastline from Tangier to Larache.
