That's really cool!  Smokin cool
I'd love to go to Morocco. I want to see Morocco and the rest of the African continent. What would you recommend for a US citizen visiting your country. Unfortunately, our county's policies in the Middle East is just downright awful and sometimes it can cause travelers to end up in tough situations when visiting.
Send me a private e-mail if you'd like. It's in my profile.

Superfly, i can tell you one thing, nort africa is different than the midlle east ( yes we are arabs ) but for some reasons we're kind of different from the middle easterns ( it's a common fact to go out and party in here ). so those story about killing american and all that are not true, i've never heard of any american tourist being harmed while in morocco.
as a matter of fact, more and more american tourists visit morocco every year.

as for places to visit morocco i would suggest agadir, about 12 hours drive from casablanca ( or you can take the shuttle that takes about 45 minutes )
tangier is a beautiful place too.

Oh wow ! that town Rabat (Citta' Victoria), Gozo
is the most amazing, my guess is that its somewhere in europe, it does look like a southern european town and from the name i would guess its italian isnt it ?

ooooops, sorry for the misunderstanding, i meant lived.
i did spend about 3 years in morocco 1993-1996
my mom used to be an economy teacher at lycee descartes ( in rabat ) so in the year-end vacation we used to go to ifrane skiing i love the town, but for a then-teenager like me, it was pretty boring because there was too quite and not much to do.
right now it`s on the other side of the world for me  Smile

i now attend school in the US, so like people say, i get to go places  Smile

You want a photo of Pocatello? You got it.

Here's a photo of us during summer. In this picture you see the southeastern part of the city. In the center right of the photo is Holt Arena, better known as the Mini Dome. IT looks like half of a white pop can lying on its side. On the lower right corner you see a large hiss with an "I" on it. That's Red Hill, it's at the center of the Idaho State University campus. Just at the foot of that hill you see most of the ISU student buildings, the BA building, the Institute, the Student Union building, etc, and you also see Davis Field, where Stacy Dragila herself trained for polevaulting. The green areas behind the hills make up Bart's Field, a popular sledding area in the winder and surrounded by college dorms.

On the lower left side of the picture you see various warehouses and old buildings. this is Pocatello's commercial district. Depressing, isnt it. Most of those buildings are throw aways from the railroad industry which used to be here, now those buildings are tire shops, garages, steel plants, etc.

On the center left of the photo you see the prosperous northern district of Pocatello, known as the Highland Area. Here you can divide the town like a kife. Medium income homes give way to rich person's mansions, retirement homes, huge lawns and gaping verandas. This is what we Pocatellians like to call, "Snob Hill", and yes, they are. Most of these people are very involved within church activites. If you are LDS, chances are that your bishop's house, is on Snob Hill, ha, where's the irony in that? (No offense, I'm a member too.  Big grin )

This is also the area of Pocatello that has the highest growth rate. New homes are being built every day in this area. However, commercial prosperituy is nil. All of the businesses which supply decent jobs are locatred in Chubbuck, our northern and only suburb. So its not surpising that South Pocatello is rather shabby, as it is furthest from our, or rather Chubbucks, commercial center. Whereas northern Pocatello is rich.

So anyway, with that said, this is Pocatello, Idaho:

YazOO: Rabat (Citta' Victoria), or actually Rabat by its Maltese name and Victoria by its English name, is the "capital" of the island of Gozo, in the Maltese Archipelago. No, it's not in Italy, it's in Malta, but you got the southern Europe part right.
For a map, see my profile.
Cheers and Viva Malta,

Aloha: I do get online on AIM occasionally, mostly at around 9-10pm local time (GMT +0100). But unfortunately my exam period is coming up soon so I don't have much time.
E-mail me if you want. My address is on my profile. But I do hope to meet you online someday.
Cheers,
