A brief description

Morocco is located in North Africa and its coastline borders on the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The geography is diverse with beaches, mountains, and the Sahara Desert.  

A few facts
  • Politics:  Constitutional monarchy
  • Capital:  Rabat
  • Largest city:  Casablanca
  • Population: 32 million
  • Languages:  Berber and Moroccan Arabic with regional dialects.  French is also spoken.
  • Religion:  98% Muslim, small percentage Christian and Moroccan Judaism
My birthday is in late February and Danny and I will be going with friends for 10 days.  We will be based in Agadir which is located on the Atlantic Ocean near the foot of the Altas Mountains.  It's not a typical Moroccan city as it has large buildings, wide roads, modern hotels and European-style cafes.  The city attracts tourists mainly from Europe.
