Rebekah R Burgweger, Summer 2016 Participant
Every weekend I would go on a trip to a different city. I visited Chefchaouen, Rabat, Marrakech, the Sahara, and many more cities. While some trips were planned by the program, others trips were planned by the students. By far my favorite trip was when I visited Essouira and I walked in the very spot that Emilia Clark had walked on Game of Thrones. Not only did I see the location of the famous "dracarys" Game of Thrones scene, but I also galloped with a horse on the beach and I rode a 4-wheeler on the beach. Furthermore, I was finally getting comfortable using my language skills.

I found the people and experiences I met to be the most rewarding part.

Taking the class in Contemporary Issues in North Africa allowed me the opportunity to experience things that I would never have known about just traveling on my own during the weekends.
