Maghreb, or Land of the Furthest West, is indeed a paradox.
It is a land apart, nestled on the great northwestern shoulder
of Africa, separated from the rest of its African neighbors by
imposing mountain ranges and the vast Saharan desert. And yet,
the country is also a melting pot of African, Islamic, European
and indigenous Berber influences, reaching back millennia.
was the first Islamic kingdom, part of the larger dar-al-Islam,
a vast stretch of Islamic countries stretching across the northern
part of the African continent. And it remains one of the most
culturally diverse Islamic nations, with centuries-old Jewish
Morocco's boundaries, simple Berber
villages, their ways untouched for hundreds of years, coexist
with the most sophisticated Imperial cities. The kingdom is home
to the starkly beautiful minimalism of the desert,
and the constant bustle of the cosmopolitan medina. The West is
here, too, in the legacy of post-colonial French and in more contemporary
influences, like the ring of world-class golf courses the country
is increasingly known for. In fact, it's possible, in a city like
Fez, to see ancient, medieval
and contemporary cultures coexisting side-by-side.
binds Morocco together is the distinctive spirit of her people.
Moroccan tolerance, hospitality and generosity are legendary -
and with good reason: they are vital components of the culture.
In Morocco, you will likely receive many invitations for share
tea, if not a full meal. These should not be viewed cynically
- they are genuine expressions of the deep social bonds all members
of Moroccan society feel.
In the consumer-driven
culture of the West,
Morocco is often known for the quality of
crafts from her souks.
These are indeed some of the most remarkable expressions of human
creativity, made all the more powerful by the desert that serves
as backdrop to their creation.
what's often missed in the West is to see how all of these elements
come together: art, architecture, music, cuisine, and craft all
blend with history, cultural and social values to profoundly give
shape to life in this extraordinary place.
This is the
magic of Morocco, and it can only be witnessed firsthand!
