Exotic for many, but much
like home for myself who was born in Morocco. However, after
having been gone from this part of the world for so long, it
amazed me at how foreign I found things. I'm also slightly
embarrassed to say how foreign the people seemed to find me as I
searched for familiarity. Nonetheless I absorbed and basked in
the many familiar/foreign workings that western Africa held for
me, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
