    Watch out for sandstorms in the desert. They start almost without notice. Sand hurts and is dangerous (deadly) for your camera and binoculars.

    Monkey on your back.

    by irvbur Updated Apr 5, 2004

    In some of the souks, like Marrakesh, you might be asked if you'd like to have your picture taken with a monkey on your shoulder. It may cost you "big time" to have him take the monkey off.

    You'll be most comfortable not to travel during the months of July and August, as these are the hottest months of the year. It's still OK if you keep an easy pace and a flexible schedule.

    Even if you think it is a great idea to take you picture on a camel, be forewarned that the owner will charge you for the pleasure. Also, beware as camels spit and bite.

    The Djemaa el-Fna is a wonderful place but be careful about eating in one of the stalls that set up at dusk. I got very sick from eating here.

    Even though criminality is very low, still there's the risk to be mugged. Do not walk alone in dark deserted places. Quite obvious, isn't it?...
