Morocco Morocco Morocco

What is there to do in Morocco, especially Rabat and Fez?

I'm asking primarily on behalf of masaga. There was a comptranslation workshop on Arabic-to-English translation scheduled for spring break, 2006, and since I can't make it (due to a lot of research and teaching duties on this end), and since I will be visiting family in China when the rescheduled trip is to happen (early June), masaga and one other member or affiliate of my research group will be representing us.

(Yay, I finally get to use my comptranslation icon!)

Roman ruins on the coastal areas, and Fez has a fantastic dye-works...I don't recall the date off-hand, though. Casablanca, of course, for touristy stuff. North coast Spanish enclaves. Oh, and a roommate from...2 years ago? mentioned taking a tour of the desert by camel.

(I've never been to Morocco, myself, though. I'm insanely jealous...)

Sounds good
... I might get the chance to go in another year or so, once this project gets off the ground. Duty calls, etc.

Yeah, the desert is nice, but tours can get expensive. Worth the price though. The Atlas mountains amazed me, but I found the Sierra Nevadas even more breathtaking.

Namaste.

Fez is beautiful, but it will probably get boring after a few days. Rabat will get boring after a day or so. Marakech was a bit better, but not by much. I found Moroc pretty boring in general. There is much better muslim architecture elsewhere (esp SW Spain). The Moroc people can be very shady. Things are pretty dirty and generally blech. Moroc would be one of those countries that I have no desire to re-visit.

Namaste.
