I arrived with two bags.  No job. No apartment. And only a few friends.  Being a social young professional this was a bit of a challenge.  But things have a way of working themselves out and now I’m here and I’m blogging about having the time of my life. Of course there were days when I wanted to stand on the rooftop terrace and scream what have I done with me life? But for the most part I love it.  And things seem to work themselves out. I found a place to call my own and interesting people have come into my life.

Why Morocco?

In June 2010 I travelled to Morocco and had the trip of a lifetime. The people, the music, the food, the landscapes, the sights and sounds and the lifestyle have inspired me to return.  Some people understand why I’d want to return.  Others were horrified at the fact that I would give up the apartment I love so much, search for a job unrelated to what I studied in college and university for five years, and relocate to a developing nation.  But I think it’s all worth it.

Proof that things will also work themselves out if you are following your dreams!

      Thanks for your kind comments. Things are wonderful. Of course there are the ups and downs, but yet I continue to stay. I hope you love the hustle and bustle, sights and sounds and magic that continues to amaze me.

    I found your blog randomly. I’m Japanese girl who studied at national university in japan.
    I gonna go to morocco in the end of August. So I searched about Moroccan women for my research, I found your blog! I’m interested in your article. And if your schedule allows, can I see and hear about morocco in Marrakech? I know it’s sudden, but I don’t have a chance that I will go to morocco. So I wanna hear and see as many women as possible. I’m glad to get your answer. Thanks.

    Interesting for us to read as we are currently living in Esso – we certainly didn’t know we could go “out” dancing here (we’ll check it out), but we are keeping the fish market in business. I’ve been writing a bit about the whole experience; maybe you’ll enjoy – it’s a bit different style I guess: medinasolitaire.blogspot.com

  6. Merry Christmas, Mandy! Thank you for all your posts and updates! I always enjoy reading them and seeing all your photos!:)
