Hi i’m Shane Dawson, you may know me from the famous youtube channel; Shane dawson TV or may have watched my movie ‘Not Cool’, but when it all come down to it, I am one for adventure, have teamed up with National Geographic to teach you about the world, with the world. (Maybe that sounded better in my head, but you get the idea)
Maybe you’ve heard of Morocco while doesing off in geography class, or did your own bit of research on it, but no matter what you think you know, I can tell you, it's completely different from anything you would expect. A country where modern, meet old, and beauty, meets heritage, it sounds cliche, but that's the only real way to describe it.
Now when you look at Africa’s tourism you tend to imagine rich european people, coming there and ‘Saving them from their misery’ or ‘Learning their ways’. But the closest thing I could find was a 3 day stay with some of the Berber people. I have mentioned this before but the Berbers are the indigenous people of North Africa, and they still live in huts and stuff.
Basicly I slept in one of the huts and lived the ‘simple life’, the first day I arrived Lisa and I had to participate in one of their camp fire dance things, lets just say.. they really like their ‘peace pipe’. After a tough sleep on what was basically a rock, i woke up wondering if i peed myself and later realized it was just sweat, i took a quick ‘shower’ (A 20 minute trek to the nearest pond, and got as sweaty as on my way back), after abit of vlogging we started helping them with their daily chores, washing clothes (In the same pond as before), cooking (With whatever animals dared step in their area), and of course more peace piping! Again.. i didn’t even try it, because boy.. they couldn’t speak after one huff. The rest of the days went very similarly, other than one day which one of the berber girls asked me to collab (Video Collaboration) with her on her youtube channel.. yes a berber girl.. Now here we came to the end of these 3 days, all i was looking for was a shower, and sadly, there are no showers on airplanes.. so i basicly smelled like rotting fish and sweat on the flight from Marrakech to LA.
