We look forward to introducing you to the magic of Morocco.
- Morocco was the first nation in the world to recognize the newly independent United States of America in 1776 and is a major non-NATO ally of the USA
- The Sahara desert is over 3.6 million square miles, comprising 8% of the world's land area -- the entire continental USA could fit in the Sahara with room to spare!
- Winston Churchill was enamoured with Morocco and enjoyed painting on property at La Mamounia. Today, one may stay in the Churchill suite at the iconic hotel
- Geographically, Morocco is a land of contrasts, showcasing the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, rolling waves on the Atlantic coast, wide sandy Mediterranean bays, towering sand dunes and green oases
- Morocco has long been a diverse and tolerant society with the three major world religions co-existing in peace. Jewish heritage and history in Morocco is particulary prominent
- The cuisine of Morocco is a melting pot of the indigenous, rural Berber people and diverse influences from neighboring lands. Tajine is often a main dish; it is a stew made with fish, chicken beef or lamb, and often includes prunes or almonds
