Lamb: It’s What’s for Dinner (WARNING: this post may include graphic content unsuitable for certain readers; but you should read it anyway)

The majority of today was spent in Meknes, a city in northern Morocco. Meknes is home to a fairly small Medina (meaning, “old city”) that is comprised of a myriad of narrow alleyways making up a local souk, or street market. Anything from meat, fish, fruit, and vegetables to laundry detergent, leather, fabrics, and mattresses are available at the souk. In the few hours we spent wandering around and literally getting lost in the souk, I saw no other Westerners. I also got air punched/attacked by a seven year old. In the afternoon, we made our way from Meknes to Fes, stopping off at Volubilis, the best preserved Roman ruin in northern Africa.

Here are some photo highlights from today, some food, some scavengers, from life to death, and the soil from which it all begins.
