Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

We had a very early start to the morning waking up at 6:30 am. We then went to this really awesome churros place. (Not sure if it just tasted really awesome because we were running on 6 hours of sleep or if it was really good). We then meandered with only our camera and a little bit of money and two phones between the three of us to the boat. We didn't really know what we were doing at all, but we felt in control. We got through customs and onto the ferry no problem. Then we got our passport stamped while on the boat. T and E fell asleep while we crossed the Mediterranean. We then arrived and we were very excited. However once we got off the boat we realized it was not as easy as Rick said. Our guide was not there and one of our phones didn't work. We were being hassled by numerous tour guides and taxi drivers. After about fifteen minutes (which seemed like 5 hours) we decided to walk away and find our own little spot to sit. Which happened to be at the bottom of a hill on a yellow piece of cement. (The only place we felt safe) We called our guide. He said he would be there in five minutes. When he didn't show up in ten we all really started panicking. We decided to find a bathroom, which turned out to be way harder than we thought and finally he arrived. A whole thirty five minutes late. We started the tour and we walked through the old town. We passed by many mosques and saw some places where the Bourne movies were filmed and an upcoming Mission Impossible movie was filmed. We then walked to a Morrocan house and got beautiful views. Shortly after our guide felt bad so he drove us to ride on some camels. We still had to pay 2 euros, but the trek was free as well as the drive around town. We then walked around a market and tried some Morrocan green tea. He paid for all the food we tried and he also paid for our green tea as he felt sorry.
