Photographer's Note

Hi dear TE friends,

These are my last pictures with my Benq camera!
After these two pictures, the camera had a serious accident and was seriously damaged.

Tangier sunsets are very gorgeous as you can enjoy in this photo.

Morocco kingdom in the North of Africa. Morocco is a fabled destination for travellers, known for its spectacular mountain scenery, its colourful bazaars, and its ancient capitals at Fès and Marrakech. In Arabic the country’s name is Al Mamlakah al Maghribīyah, meaning “the kingdom of the West.”

Morocco is located at the crossroads of several worlds: African, Mediterranean, Christian, and Islamic. From these varied influences the country has forged a distinctive culture, apparent in its arts and architecture, language, cuisine, and outlook on the world. Spain lies directly across the Strait of Gibraltar from Morocco, only 13 km (8 mi) distant. For 44 years, from 1912 to 1956, Morocco was divided into protectorates and ruled by France and Spain. Even today, two Spanish enclaves—Ceuta and Melilla—on the Mediterranean coast remain within Morocco and small islands off the coast also belong to Spain.

The people of Morocco are mainly Arabs and Berbers or of mixed Arab and Berber ancestry. Arabic is the official language of the country, but many people speak a Berber language, especially in rural areas. French is also spoken in the cities. Morocco’s economy is based largely on agriculture, but tourism contributes significantly.
