1. Morocco It's my party

    Balloons and soda are worldwide symbols of a child's birthday. Here guests of the birthday girl patiently await the cutting of the cake and opening of the bottles.

  2. Morocco Celebrating Culture

    Two young Amazigh ladies show off the traditional dress of their region at an English language summer camp. Despite its small appearance, Morocco is as diverse in language and culture as it is in places to visit.

    Memories of booda tanks and half painted walls...

  10. Morocco Habiba

    My best friend in my village taught me more about what it was to be 'tough' than any other person I've met.  She was making a fire to bake some bread in her clay oven.
