Morocoo is a Muslim country and relatively liberal.

French is commonly spoken, the word for Morocco is 'Maroc', hence their country code of "ma".

Their currency is MAD. A lot of shops will also accept EUR.

This is where we stayed in our holiday for Christmas 2010.

Restaurants

Muslims do not drink alcohol, but as a tourist you'll still be able to find some in restaurants, albeit expensively.

Le Foundouk

Le Foundouk is a nice restaurant just north of the souks. We ate there on 2011-01-01. It has a nice door. If you didn't book, like us, they could still find space for you up in the terrace. Its nice up there, they provided gas heaters as it was quite cold at night.

I had rabbit for the first time. I'd seen some for sale in the markets and wondered whether they were for pets or for eating. Probably eating. It tastes like chicken but the bone structure is different.
