The Haunting Colors & Sounds of Morocco
Morocco is color, light, form, movement, and tremendous variety. From the hand-built boats at Essaouira, moored together in a repeating pattern of graceful shapes, and piles of multicolored fishing nets at the harbor, color and form are everywhere. Marakesh's Jemaa el-Fnaa square is alive with movement, color, and the energy of its many vendors and shoppers. The afternoon air is filled with the smoke of cooking fires as the sun sets on the square. Then there is the solitude and beauty of night and morning on the Sahara. Always there are the warm hearts of the Moroccan people.
“My recent experience in Morocco was enriched by the kindness and friendliness of its' people. Never did I feel any concern about being an American in a Muslim country. I was struck by how profound, personal, respectful, and diverse their religious connections are and felt privileged that I could meet and be in an Islamic community that is far different from what is portrayed in the news media. Along the way I met and spoke to many Israeli tourists who see Morocco as a "must visit" place to go." — S.W. Pitlik
