Rubi went from Barcelona to Morocco where she rode on the back of a camel, saw Marrakesh and the Sahara desert, and represented SDSU in her Be International shirt. But see for yourself and experience Morocco through Rubi’s eyes with her photos and captions below!
The three amigos jumping in open air in Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, Morocco.
A private mosque tower located in the big city of Marrakesh, where only muslims are allowed to enter and pray. We learned that muslims pray five times a day.
This is a typical street located in the shopping area in Marrakesh. I loved the streets full of color and culture.
We slept in the Sahara desert for two days, which was epic and beautiful. The sand was so soft and the people were nice… an unforgettable experience!
Making argon oil from scratch with these hard working ladies — while wearing my Be International shirt!
These talented African musicians performed for us and danced with us. They showed so much soul and so much love for their music.
The real hard working ladies who make argon oil. They don’t look so happy, but they have to work wherever they can to make a life for themselves in the desert.
Back in Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. This is a famous place where movies such as Gladiator, Indiana Jones and Cleopatra were filmed.
View from above of Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. The beauty is unbelievable!
The muddy river in Kasbah is not suitable for swimming, but fun to cross!

I tried to fit in with the locals by wearing a hijab during my camel ride. It was pretty comfortable to wear.
