Just compare tourists with pink skin, skimpily dressed walking about in the hot sun getting pinker and pinker, to a Moroccan family dressed in flowing garments. Men should avoid going bare-
Harira is the Moroccan word for a thick vegetable soup. A particularly delicious one contains a bread dumpling. Main courses are usually one of the following: grilled meat on skewers often served with french fries; couscous, either vegetarian or meat with vegetables; and Tagine, the Moroccan stew, usually meat, tomatoes, potatoes, onions and spices. Moroccan cooks use a mélange of spices such as cumin, turmeric, paprika, saffron and pepper for a subtly flavoured cuisine. In the Sahara you can find ‘Berber pizza’. This is a double crusted pie filled with meat, hard boiled eggs, almonds and spices. Sometimes rather peppery, Berber pizza is best eaten with a glass of mint tea.
Every seaport has freshly caught fish prepared by the fishermen on or near the piers. Do not miss this treat!
Fresh fruit is served for dessert; pomegranates, melons, bananas, apples, oranges and dates all produced in Morocco and all bursting with flavour.
Look for banks which don’t charge a fee or bring the money you are sure to spend in large denominations.
Major credit cards are accepted in the larger hotels and almost all shops. ATM machines can be found in most places even in the south. Use a money belt for all your valuable papers, checks, passport and credit cards.
However, even if your subject is not aware of your camera, someone else will be and he/she will warn that person. Then you may be the recipient of a lecture or a demand for money. You can either leave or ask the person to pose in exchange for a small amount of money. Make sure that they understand that you will take several exposures for that agreed upon sum. Otherwise, they will expect that amount of money for each exposure.
It is somewhat daunting to go through this procedure every time you want to take a picture. If you have a guide he can help with any negotiations concerning money and translate your instructions regarding posing.
It is difficult if not impossible to photograph women unless they are unaware of you. Sometimes they will agree if you offer to pay. However, often their husband will appear out of nowhere and demand that you stop. This you must do. According to Islam, he is her lord and master and she must obey him. Women can be frightened of the camera for fear of what her husband will say or do if he finds out that she has allowed her picture to be taken. Even a guide cannot help you here.
Although many professional photographers feel that they should not have to pay for any photographs they have taken, it seems only fair to compensate some people who have in reality ‘modeled’ for you. You have paid a great deal of money to travel to Morocco in order to have some unique photos, why not compensate the people who have made this possible?
Don’t forget to bring your child’s favourite teddy bear or equivalent like colouring pencils and books that will keep the child occupied during long trips.
Food poses no problem just try to avoid as much as you can the street stalls, if you can’t see anything suitable on the given menu just ask the restaurant staff to prepare something specially for children, also its a good idea to carry some snacks and Bananas.
So who ever is present in a home during that month should spend it in fasting. But if any one is ill, or on a journey the prescribed period should be made up days later. Allah intends every facility for you. He does not want to put you to difficulty he wants you to complete the prescribed period and glorify him, in that he has guided you and perhaps you will be grateful.
Fasting in Ramadan is to stop eating, drinking, and sexual actions between married couples from dawn time to sunset to satisfy god. First fasting is a big proof how much you love god then give your body a chance to rest during day hours, this is an annual chance which will benefit human systems. Ramadan is also about empathy of the hungry people all around the world, because every muslim should feel the pain of his brother in faith and then by all humans.
Ramadan hardly impacts tourism in Morocco. The only changes you will notice are that some tourist sites, shops and banks close earlier so this should be taken into account. Hotels and restaurants will still be serving food to tourists all day. As a matter of respect don’t openly eat, drink or smoke in public.
Visiting Morocco in Ramadan is a great idea as it is less crowded as well as an interesting experience to add to your cultural knowledge of the country.
– Don’t forget that you should see your doctor who can help if the risks of the trip are suitable for you, seek medical advice before heading off for a trip overseas.
– There are certain activities that you should completely avoid while pregnant for example Camel and horse treks, riding on Jet Skis etc.
– Its highly recommended to take breaks every two hours while traveling by car to walk around.
There are many wonderful things to buy, from the colourful spices markets to the fabulously designed carpets, handcrafted brass, copper ware cedar wood pots. Please bear in mind that the quality of the goods is variable, so it’s very important not to buy the first thing that you come across and remember that discussing the price is a way of life in Morocco so get ready to bargain. However often if you have asked for the price the shop keeper thinks you are committed to the sale.
Throughout the days are warm and nights are cool.
