Morocco: Calm amidst the storm


Moroccan women in Tangier medina.

Morocco is one of the few North African countries that has been spared the recent turmoil of civil unrest, tribalism, and Islamic radicalism that has beset the region. It’s not without its malcontents, but visitors generally don’t have to be concerned about kidnappings or collapsing governments. Moroccans, mostly a mix of Maghrebi and Arabic, are friendly and hospitable, their culture fascinating. The country is well run and easy to get around, even without a functioning knowledge of the Maghrebi Arabic or French. Its major cities – Casablanca, Marrakesh Fes, Rabat, and Tangier – are vibrant, diverse urban centers with no shortage of things to do and see. Its cuisine is tasty and never disappoints, just don’t always expect wine with dinner. Politics, religion? They never came up in any of the conversations I had when I visited, only the country and its people. The pictures below are from that trip.
