YOUNESS AMRANI: MARRAKESH EXPRESS - FULL PART

by

Welcome aboard the Marrakesh Express

There's no place like home. And as the world continues to grow more globalized and culturally cross-pollinated, many of us are increasingly blessed with primary, secondary, and tertiary homes as a result of our globetrotting upbringings and divided heritages. Youness Amrani was born to Moroccan parents shortly after they immigrated to Hasselt, Belgium. While he grew up on the European continent, with frequent visits back to Morocco as a child, his primal roots remained firmly planted in Northern Africa. Having not returned to Morocco in more than a decade, he set out with his brother earlier this year to make the pilgrimage home to Kenitra and pay a surprise visit to his grandmother, who still lives there. In the process, he also planned to ride his skateboard, collect photos for the following article over a 10-day stretch on the northern tip of the African continent, and cover the road between Casablanca and Marrakesh by way of Rabat, Kenitra, and Agadir. Welcome aboard the Marrakesh Express.
