Morocco or bust

A friend of mine recently took a trip to Morocco.

Unfortunately, he barely made it out of there alive.

Knowing nothing about Morocco, I was quite surprised by the horror stories he had to relay.

But every time I pass along the story of his vacation gone awry, I am even more surprised by the number of people who have horror stories of their own (or of their friends') to share about Morocco.

So, I want to know.

Is there anyone out there who has been to this country recently who had a pleasant experience?

I'm just curious.

What happened to your friend? I would have never guessed that Morocco would be a problem...

My wife & I stopped there during our honeymoon (right around the time we invaded Iraq). We didn't have any problems (other than the beggars all over the place). It is certainly a very unique place. If you're expecting to see something like Disney, you'll be disappointed.

Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day sure didn't in The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Eh.... Que Sera Sera

Looking at the world
Trough the sunset in your eyes,
Trying to make the train
To clear Moroccan skies;
Bugs and pigs and chickens call,
Animal carpet wall to wall,
American man is five foot tall, and you,
Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind,
Had to get away to see what we could find;
Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they've led,
Listen up to what's been said to you.
Would you know we're riding
on the Marrakesh Express?
All on board that train!
I've been saving all my money just to take you there,
I smell the garden in your hair.
Take a train to Casablanca going south,
Blowing smoke rings from the corners of my mouth;
Cold coffins hang in the square,
Charming corporals in the square.
Don't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express?
They're taking me to Marrakesh Express;
Don't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express?
They're taking me to Marrakesh;
All on board that train!

When I was 13 I was in the Casablance airport and used the restroom. As best as I recall, it was a pleasant experience. I relieved myself. I reboarded my family's flight. It was an exeprience I will not soon forget.
