Spring break in 2008 found us traveling with friends in Morocco. An amazing trip through a culture and country of friendly people. An overnight flight from Frankfurt landed us in Casablanca (no Bogart sightings). Rabat, the capital city was next with its kasbahs and then the Roman ruins of Volubillus near Meknes. The leather tannery in Fez was terribly smelly but that did not deter the shopping. Crossing the Middle Atlas mountains going through Berber villages got us to Marrakesch. Along the way we encountered King Mohammed's motorcade and herds of camels. the best thing about Marrakesch is the Place Djemma el Fna, a huge square in the city that provides free entertainment and some of the best people watching I've ever seen. Snakes are charmed, tatoos are applied, monkeys dance alone and with people. You can join in or just watch. It's free and deserves several gigs of still or video memory.
