For centuries, Morocco has been the traveler's gateway to North Africa. And itís as magical a place to explore today as it was in the days of the spice trade. Diversity abounds, ocean, desert and mountains combine with an equally diverse culture, resulting in an eclectic and fascinating experience. This journey begins in the coastal town of Essaouira, where the ancient medina comes to life in music, folklore and barter. The adventure continues on the road, over the peaks of the Atlas Mountains, into the Saharan dunes of Erg Chebbi, to a feast at a Berber wedding celebration. Through the historical influences of African, Berber, Moor, Arab and French, a land of enchantment emerges.
