James FitzPatrick begins the visit to Algiers with references to high-seas piracy and Commodore Perry's armada. The French influence on the North Africa is reviewed, we visit the Casbah and later a typical Arab family. Then it's on to Morocco: Casablanca, a cultural crossroads, Rabat with its sultan's palace and crowded market, and Marrakech with its fine hotel (the Mamounia) and a busy town square.- Written by <firstname.lastname@example.org>
This narrated travelogue starts in the harbor city of Algiers, Algeria, the former headquarters of pirates, and showcases the Casbah, the palace fortress of the pirates. The cities of Casablanca (largest city and port), Rabat (capital) and Marrakesh in Morocco are visited next. In each city, the fundamentally Arab population with its marketplaces and simpler ways is contrasted with the European influence seen in architecture, automobile traffic and hotel life.- Written by TimeNTide
