Writing News:

Curly-hair, cheeky-smile, a backpack light on supplies—I think of Zak when I think of Morocco. An American in Europe with travel on his mind. “Come with me to Tangier,” he’d invited smilingly one night in Barcelona when the cervezas had been cheap and plentiful and my travels were only just beginning.
