Christina's Journey to Morocco

Current Location

Marrakech, Morocco

Join me on my journey to Ifrane, Morocco! I will spend the semester as a Gilman Scholar studying at Al Akhawayn University and exploring every corner of Morocco!


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to ride a camel in the desert? I found out this week when I traveled to the mighty Sahara Desert!


With my four months in Morocco coming to an end, the time to say goodbye is drawing nearer. I have come to enjoy many things about Morocco and I will miss them when I go home!

Field Notes

The needs of communities are often related to their location and living conditions. The community of Zawiyat is affected by its remote location in the mountains and distance from larger cities.


Meet the monkeys of the Atlas Mountains! They're a friendly bunch who want nothing more than to be fed. Who can resist that face?
