I'm in Marrakech now reading your TR.

88K EY for ET J from NYC is a great deal and things here cost next to nothing so it makes for a great inexpensive winter trip.

Marrakech is a fantastic fusion of Jewish history and Maghreb culture. December is very low tourist season but its still 65-70 out and you feel like you are the only tourist in town

I'll add more to the Morocco thread once I finish here

Love the report, bringing back good memories of my own Morocco experience last December.

December is very low tourist season but its still 65-70 out and you feel like you are the only tourist in town

Early December, yes, but it does fill with tourists between X-mas and New Years.

There ain't that many options. A weekend is perfect.
