This Traveltalks entry visits the city of Algiers in Algeria, and the cities of Casablanca, Rabat, and Marrakech in Morocco.
James A. FitzPatrick begins the visit to Algiers with references to high-seas piracy and Commodore Perry's armada. The French influence on north Africa is reviewed, we visit the Kasbah, 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.
This narrated travelogue starts in the harbor city of Algiers, Algeria, the former headquarters of pirates, and showcases the Kasbah, the palace fortress of the pirates. The cities of Casablanca (largest city and port), Rabat (capital) and Marrakech 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.
