Moroccan Photo Tour: Day 4

Posted in Africa, Morocco, On the Ground

Are you ready to say goodbye to Morocco? No? I wasn’t either, but here we are. Friends, we’ve come to the last photo tour of my trip to Morocco (thanks to the wonderful Pompeian Olive Oil company). If you’d like to recap the first three days of my trip, please do so:

On Day 4 of my trip, we started in Meknes at an olive farm (Sodeom Jerry) before journeying on to Fez where we stayed at the gorgeous Relais & Chateaux property Riad Fes and enjoyed a farewell dinner before hopping on a bus at 4am to head back to the airport in Casablanca.

Our first stop was at the olive farm, where these local Moroccan women made us a fresh breakfast of traditional Moroccan breads and pancakes. This is my favorite, m’smen, being rolled and fried:
