A Visit to Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains
I know that the latest news out of Morocco is the expulsion of five Christian missionaries from the country. But anyone who has lived in Morocco with their eyes open knows that this is not news. On a good day, I could round up fifty Christian missionaries studying Arabic in Fes alone. This latest hubbub is just a way to justify cracking down on Shia missionaries, the Moroccan government has to look "fair."
Anyway, how about a little trip to the Atlas Mountains? This link is to a short, well done video article about a trip to Toubkal that was done for the New York Times a few years ago but is worth the watch.
