Rock the Kasbah: Ait Benhaddou Style

Kasbah. It's fun to say. Try it!

Although I made it to Ouarzazate & Ait Benhaddou before seeing either Lawrence of Arabia or Gladiator, I pretended that I was a huge fan of both films. It seemed like the appropriate American thing to do? To be quite honest, I still haven't seen "Lawrence of Arabia". It's on my list in between "Goonies" and "Pretty Woman". I'm clearly a movie buff.

Here are some quality kasbah snapshots for your viewing pleasure:

Looks like someone could use some more stairs.. hint.. self.

The scene was just so surreal. As was the camel trek across the Sahara. Simply put, Morocco is a must-see destination.

Great to see that you enjoyed Morocco more than we did!

Thanks for visiting, Daveb! I could have gone without some of the haggling myself, but we were with a guide (a native of Fez) who really helped to serve as a buffer in between us and some of the more aggressive Marrakech folks. All in all, it was a very unique experience that I'm glad to have gone through.
