Morocco means where the sun sets. America to the West, Asia to the East, the rest of Africa to the South and Europe in the North. Morocco is the center of the world. Morocco is the center of life. Continue reading
In real time, I have been in Morocco for almost a week. But since time stops here it feels like much less. Although I am afraid time is passing by and I will have to leave eventually. I wish this time will never end, that I can wake up every day of my life in Marrakech and go buy freshly made warm msemen. Have a mint tea every evening while I watch the sun setting over Jemaa-El-Fna.
Today is Christmas Eve. And yes, I feel sad for not being at home with my family. But there is nowhere else in the world I could be but here.
This year has been particularly hard for me. At the same time, it has taught me so much about how strong and capable I am. It has also taught me that I have to let go of material stuff, because I have nothing at the moment and I feel so free. I also learned that my home is within me. That I feel stable and confident if I constantly move. I also remembered that love can change it all. I met so many people. Some of them I don’t ever want to cross path, others, I wish we can share the same path for the rest of this journey.
This year I have conquered the impossible. Worked full time and obtained two master’s degrees. All made possible because of the desire that drives me: to dedicate my life to those in need. To those children out there and, whom I believe, deserve the same opportunities I had, or better ones.
2019 is coming. With many new objectives, challenges, places to see and smiles to share. I can’t wait.
19 is my favorite number. 19 is Ka. Ka like the wind.

“It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key.” Wiston Churchill said this about Russia, but I am sure if he would have visited Morocco he would have said the same about this country.
