Learning the local craft

Over the last few days students have been fully immersed in Moroccan life, spending time with their Homestay families in the small mountain of Azrou. Azrou literally means “the rock”, and a big rock marks the center of town where families and friends gather at sundown.

Students are practicing their Darija skills, and challenged to eat many (many) times a day, with of course copious amounts of Moroccan sweet tea.

Students have also had the amazing opportunity to learn a local craft from a mentor at the Artisan center. Some students decided to learn rug weaving, while others are focusing on leather shoe making and stone and wood carvings.
