    Morocco is one of my favourite places as well; I recently spent 3 months there…I like that its culture embraces ‘ antiquity to modernity ‘ all in one …the ancient history is still evident and yet all the satelite dishes high above the medina rooftops are a sign of the times.

    This was great! I just got back from Morocco. I found it to be a charming place and wish I could have stayed longer than a week.

      It is probably my most favorite destination so far (although Paris is still my favorite city). Such an amazing place with absolutely wonderful people.

    Talon, I’m so glad to hear that you are impressed – I follow your blog because I value your opinion as a seasoned traveller, and I love your voice (great writing!). Your experiences in Morroco are like mine when I’m in Algeria. I think that part of what you are describing – the patience, the reverence for children, the laid back vibe – are all found with Muslims wherever you go in north Africa. I’m a non Muslim, Canadian who has very limited French (probably like yours), and a son, much like yours by the posts I’ve read, and I’ve had the exact same feelings as you about that wonderful part of the world. Although I travel regularly to Algeria, I really want to see and feel and know Morroco. Thank you so much for writing about what truly matters when traveling the world – the people:)

    Oh Talon, I really shouldn’t be reading such articles about the beautiful and tempting morocco when flights are so cheap from madrid 😉 Love hearing that the place still mystifies you, and I’d be lying if I said that even with my many visits and time spent there, if it’s shown any more of it’s mysteries to me 🙂

    wonderful post, talon- just love it! 🙂

    Nice work, Talon. Morocco has been a dream of mine ever since the Indiana Jones days, and became even more well defined after I listened to the Master Musicians of Jajouka and Bachir Attar, read the work of Paul Bowles, and tried Moroccan food for the first time back in the ’90s. It ranks right up there with Kenya and North India among my favorite cultures, and I appreciate the inside info on what to expect if/when we finally make it there.

      Have you started talking with any tourism agencies? I believe they’re trying to make more of an effort. I know the country is throwing more money into places like Guelmim to make them more of a draw for tourists, too. So now might be the time to make that dream reality. 🙂 It’s an amazing place. It truly is.
