I love Morocco too, although I'm biased since I'm half Moroccan
Really it's a great place to visit.
Because I have family there I may see the more real side to it. But even tourists can see how friendly the people are. A great sense of humor too!
One warning thou, if you get invited to a Moroccan's house, be prepared to eat a LOT of food haha.
In some ways morocco has more freedom than such countries as France. The women can wear whatever they want. And as you can see most choose not to wear
scarf. Those who do wear a scarf, do not get treated in any way different. And traditional Moroccan clothes are really beautiful. They remind me of
the elegance of geisha clothes.
There are a lot of beautiful women there too, natural beauty, but that's another topic haha.
They are a good example of how women in Islam have power too, and can be treated well, unlike what a lot of the world thinks, actually a lot of the
women look like they control the husband and the whole family haha.
Moroccan families can be very close, they love hugs, they love to show their love. Something the western world lacks.
Thanks for the thread, it helps to get more positive stories from the Islamic world, to get a more realistic view, instead of looking at one side of
the coin all the time. We can all learn from each other. Traveling is good for perspective.
If all we learned came from the news which shares mostly "negative" stories, then our view of reality would be very different to what the true
reality is. Deny ignorance.
p.s did you visit Fes?
