A country of contrast.
Morocco is a country of contrast. From the white walls and Mediterranean climate of Tangiers, past the famous blue pigment of Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains, down the Atlantic surf shores and across to the red desert sands surrounding Marrakech. Young creative people making their mark in the international fashion, film and design world whilst teetering on the walls of old values; artisans continuing the centuries-old traditions of their ancestors in quiet back alleys, while companies like Prada and Armani reside in the glamorous Morocco Mall in Casablanca.
Driving through Morocco requires full attention and, occasionally, nerves of steel. Seemingly suicidal teenagers on scooters, old men on overloaded bikes, donkey carts that have no rear view mirrors and potholes the size of Gibraltar make participating in traffic an adventure in itself.
