Dubai is so blessed to be just a few hours by plane away to many other interesting places in and around the Middle East. There is the fabled beauty of Jordan, the fertile lands of Tunisia, the ancient wonders in Egypt, the magic of Morocco, the rugged wonders of Oman and so much more. Even Dubai boasts of its own modern day paradise. I really wish to visit all of these countries before I migrate to somewhere cold.
For the meantime, I will post the recent travel of my old neighbors Marcus and Miguel to the colorful city of Marrakesh for three days. To set the record straight, these two are not lovers. Just two straight men who enjoy seeing the world together. Marcus has a girlfriend while Miguel’s status is unknown most of the time. So should I say he is single? In case one of you out there fancies him, I can easily let him know. 😉
Marrakesh is a bustling city in the Northwest African nation of Morocco that speaks the language of love–Francais. Poetically known as the Red City, high walls of red earth fortified the city, and within it, house one of the busiest squares in Africa that offer exotic wares to electronic goods. And just like the old scene from Casablanca, snake charmers, hawkers, dancers and musicians still keep the city alive with its irresistible charm of the old world. It is a pity that these two boys did not show any of Morocco’s most prized jewels–its extremely stunning women. Tsktsk.
Emmanuelle Chriqui is a Canadian actress with a pure Moroccan background.
When one visits Morocco, it is also worthy to try the world-famous Moroccan bath. It is simply lying on a stone slab and letting someone else scrub your dirt away with some special Moroccan soap. Did I mention that you have to strip naked too? That is some experience. 🙂
And who would have thought that visa is not required from Filipinos to enter Morocco. 🙂 Two thumbs up to that.

Might as well be known as cat city with their numerous feline pets who seem to love getting photographed.
SECOND DAY. Marrakesh in many colors.

A sunny stroll around the city.
Welcome to the city of spices.
Poor overworked donkey.
And this is how this entry shall start and end—with Miguel.
See you in your next adventure,boys!
