Rabat, Morocco. Kids everywhere are cute!
In the 1970s when this film shot was taken, things were a lot more primitive than today!
Using the tools of 700 years ago.

You are immediately back to the year 1300. This captured on Ektachrome film in the late 1970s. I do not know how it is today. 1300? 2000? 1650?
On the Road from Fez to Meknes, Morocco
In the Medina, a most striking place. But wear a clothes-pin on your nose! Taken with Ektachrome film 40 years ago! [Stored in the dark that whole time].
Lucky telephoto - they are very skittish!
As I approached this shepherd, he waved his arms wildly. I thought he must want me away from his flock.

I worked for USAID on a health care project in north central Mali, along side a Peace Corps physician. He was given the hut (seen to the right), but it was too hot. So, we slept outdoors at this spot, awakened at dawn by flies and a rooster.
