STANDING ON THE TIP OF SPAIN YOU ARE ABLE TO GAZE INTO A WHOLE NEW WORLD: Morocco is just across the Strait of Gibraltar and easily accessible by boat. Upon arrival in the old city of Marrakech, you may choose to visit Djemaa el Fna, the main square, for dinner. If you are traveling in the fall, keep in mind Morocco practices Ramadan, a month of prayer and fasting during the daylight hours. (It falls on a different calendar month each year, but is usually in September or October.)
You may find your surroundings quite somber but rest assured that after the sun has set the square begins to take on a life of its own. There is singing and dancing, celebration and laughter. The cities of Tangiers, Fez, and Marrakech all boast colorful bazaars and balmy nights.
