We’re now more than a month into our trip around Morocco, and I have lots of things I want to say about it. But I’m struggling to formulate those thoughts exactly. I think what it comes down to is that it’s a beautiful and fascinating place, but I don’t like being in a place with so much inequality.
By inequality, I mean several different things, such as gender inequality, inequality of wealth and opportunity between Morocco and Europe, unequal distribution of wealth and opportunity within Morocco, the way those inequalities seem to be correlated with racial/ethnic differences, etc.
I’ll write more about this in future, but in the meantime here are a few views from the south of Morocco, in the Sahara Desert, where the landscape is very different from anything I’m used to.
