Barbary Apes in the Cedar Forest – Azrou, Morocco

One of the many Barbary apes living in the cedar forest atop Azrou, Morocco.  The Barbary ape, or macaque, is a monkey that lives in North Africa and Gibraltar and can be found hanging out close to the road just south of Azrou.  The Barbrary apes were social (though I wouldn’t invite them home for dinner, let alone near your open car) and aside from one sitting on my windshield and smearing his butt all over the glass, they were as nice as one could hope for.

Here, everything is good pt. II – Tarifa, Spain

V and I recently loaded the Wagon Queen Family Truxter up and headed off to Spain with my family.  We once again based our adventure out of Tarifa, though this time we actually made it out-of-town and managed to explore a bit of Southern Spain. It was beautiful.

Independence Day – 2013

“From every mountain side, Let Freedom ring.”

My new photo assistant, Rosie, says “hello” – Rabat, Morocco

We haven’t fallen off of the face of the earth or entered witness protection – Rosie, our lovely new puppy, recently moved in with us! 

Yet another new friend in the medina pt. II – Fes, Morocco.

We aren’t silly and we certainly didn’t just fall off of the turnip truck – our furry buddy from the other day was interested in more than just looking cute and purring / chirping at us during lunch.  Specifically, he surely thought that we were his meal ticket to a fancy seafood lunch. Barring a fresh seafood lunch, he may have settled for a squab pastilla…or just the main ingredient.
