  The Chatter Box : Travel
Marrakesh by poppylv on 31 January 2008 7:14pm
Just read the new message by Michael, and was delighted to read he recently visited Marrakesh (Morocco) with his wife and that it's one of his favorite places. I'm actually going there on Sunday for a 6-day trip! I've never been to Morocco (or Africa for that matter), so I'm looking forward to it!

Has anybody here been there and are there any do's and don'ts???

btw that book Michael mentioned in the same message (In Europe by Dutch author Geert Mak) is a huge bestseller in my country and definitely worth reading if you're into history.

Yes, but it was abck in 1973 and I'm sure nothing is the same. have fun. BTW, I was only there for one day. I rode a camel, ate some delicous food and saw a nice floor show with fire-eaters and belly dancers had a snake wrapped around my neck while a native played a flute. (YIKES!) and I visited casbah. In a nutshell, that's basically my experience. So it's not much to go on.

I wish you a good travel there. I have never been there, but I have few friends, who have been there. And they really enjoyed that. I don't know from which country you are, but in these countries you shouldn't eat local food made just in the street, because of diarrhoea, but i think that this fact you know. So have nice holiday.

I know about eating from stalls on the street and I'll be careful. I'm from Holland btw, a very safe but boring place when it comes to local food :)
