Places to Visit in Morocco | Morocco Travel

For Westerners, Morocco holds an immediate and enduring fascination. Though just an hour’s ride on the ferry from Spain, it seems at once very far from Europe, with a culture – Islamic and deeply traditional – that is almost wholly unfamiliar. travel of morocco , Throughout the country, despite the years of French and Spanish colonial rule and the presence of modern and cosmopolitan cities like Rabat and Casablanca, a more distant past constantly makes its presence felt. Fez, perhaps the most beautiful of all Arab cities, maintains a life still rooted in medieval times, when a Moroccan kingdom stretched from Senegal to northern Spain, while in the mountains of the Atlas and the Rif, it’s still possible to draw up tribal maps of the Berber population. As a backdrop to all this, the country’s physical make-up is extraordinary: from the Mediterranean coast, through four mountain ranges, to the empty sand and scrub of the Sahara.

Across much of the country, the legacy of colonial occupation is still felt in many aspects of daily life. The Spanish zone contained Tetouan and the Rif, the Mediterranean and the northern Atlantic coasts, Sidi Ifni, the Tarfaya Strip and the Western Sahara; the French zone the plains and the main cities (Fez, Marrakesh, Casablanca and Rabat), as well as the Atlas. And while Ceuta and Melilla are still the territory of Spain, it is the French – who ruled their “protectorate” more closely – who had the most lasting effect on Moroccan culture, Europeanizing the cities to a strong degree and firmly imposing their language, which is spoken today by all educated Moroccans (after Moroccan Arabic or one of the three local Berber languages).

Places Visit in Morocco


This blend of the exotic and the familiar, the diversity of landscapes, the contrasts between Ville Nouvelle and ancient Medina, all add up to make Morocco an intense and rewarding experience, and a country that is ideally suited to independent travel – with enough time, you can cover a whole range of activities, from hiking in the Atlas and relaxing at laidback Atlantic resorts like Asilah or Essaouira to getting lost in the back alleys of Fez and Marrakesh. It can be hard at times to come to terms with the privilege of your position as a tourist in a country with severe poverty, and there is, too, occasional hassle from unofficial guides, but Morocco is essentially a safe and politically stable place to visit: the death in 1999 of King Hassan II, the Arab world’s longest-serving leader, was followed by an easy transition to his son, Mohammed VI, and the country pretty much carried on as normal while the Arab Spring uprisings toppled governments in nearby Libya, Tunisia and Egypt. Indeed, your enduring impressions are likely to be overwhelmingly positive, shaped by encounters with Morocco’s powerful tradition of hospitality, generosity and openness. This is a country people return to again and again.

How to Test Ceramic Disc Capacitor

Ceramic disc capacitors are units used to manage voltage for various dielectric functions in the computer industry. high voltage ceramic capacitor ,  The role of ceramic layers is to dissipate heat which may occur due to high voltage, while protecting the environment — both internal and external — from damage. With these capacitors, volumetric efficiency is inversely proportional to stability and accuracy, thus making the testing process difficult.



Step 1 Testing ceramic capacitors is important, because, when exposed to high voltage, the capacitors may short out. If this occurs, your monitor may blink or be absent. You can solve this problem by replacing the ceramic capacitors all together. However, if you have the proper equipment you can test the ceramic capacitors.
Step 2 Use a digital multimeter to test a ceramic capacitor. If the voltage is constant, the capacitor functions properly. However, you cannot measure it properly if the ohmmeter's output and digital capacitance don…

How Should Shoes Actually Fit?

The Wall Street Journal’s senior style reporter Elizabeth Holmes Opens a New Window.  recently started her column Opens a New Window. New Dior Homme Collection  by asking a simple question: “When was the last time you had your foot measured to check your shoe size?” I promptly answered in my head and also possibly aloud, “Well, when my foot last stopped growing. Why would I need to do it again? I’m a grown adult human who pays the majority of my bills on time. I think I know how to buy and wear shoes.”






Apparently not. Holmes’s article goes on to explain how our feet have grown an average of two sizes since the 1970s in order to support us as the species grows taller, which is changing how shoes are designed, made, and sold by older, established brands. She also cites a recent U.K. study of more than 2,000 similarly grown adults, which proves that while sitcoms and stereotypes suggest it’s women who choose style over comfort, about a third of men are also wearing shoes that don’t prop…
