Morocco…I have no idea what day it is anymore…

April 16, 2009

We landed in Casablanca after traveling for at least 24 hours to have customs confiscate our camera. I cried. I was really tired.

Luckily we were schedule to spend the night in Rabat and so we went to the Ministry of Communication and got the right paperwork to be able to get the camera back AND film anywhere in the country no questions asked (not that anyone ever asked questions). It was an adventure. Chris had to argue with the guy to get the camera back even with all the paper work.

In Rabat we filmed at AMSELD a center for disabled kids. They do an awesome job both helping the kids and training the families to help the kids. We got to spend the day with Yusalla, who is 5 years old and who’s family moved from Fez to get her help. Their story is truly amazing as now Yusalla can walk and is starting to talk, when all the doctors said she’d never walk.

The Others left after the first day to go to Marakech and film some friends of mine who own a trekking company. It was looking like Morocco was going to be a very full trip.
