There are a number of places that are still on my list to visit in the Middle East, and maybe when I return back to the region to work or do research I'll have a chance to explore. One of these places is in a country that has been relatively peaceful in the last years, and has an interesting cultural scene.
I think the initial pictures remind me of Indiana Jones movies...a sprawling square lined with vendors, snake charmers, and kebab makers. Many interesting cafes are also present, providing insight into the local culture.
There are many airlines that fly into Marrakech, so using points would not be a problem. Hope that I can find a way on a future trip!
