That is the country that I've decided on. I get out of college in January, and I figure if I work for a year I can have a few thousand saved up. Being as Morocco is a kind of last frontier, and the currency exchange rate is 10:1, that country is looking like my favorite.

The more I read about it, the more I want to go there. Though I have never seen the movie, just the word, "Casablanca" weighs heavily on me. Tangiers is the city on the Straits of Gibralter, formally seen as the ends of the Earth...the more I read, the more I want to go there.

It seems like a place that has a good mix of everything- enough European country that it's nearly settled, and has easy ways to get around, but enough of that uncivilized wonder to the point where you could kill a man and get away with it.

I'd like to elaborate more on my feelings about this place, but I fail now. All I can say is that the more I read, the more I want to go.

Soon, I will be drinking with the Mediterranean to my back and the Sahara desert to my front.

Morocco eh? Planning to join the French Foreign Legion while you're there? I admire your having the cojones to try a "different" spot like that (since I would never even imagine going there). That being said, I'm sure it will be an incredible trip. Expecting photos, blogging and utter mayhem. Don't disappoint.
