This adventure is to Morocco, for the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) International Destination Expo in Marrakesh. I flew to JFK where I boarded a brand new 787 Dreamliner for the non-stop to Casablanca, Air Maroc's hub. We arrived early in the morning, and the airport was essentially shut down. Tough when you have a 3 hour+ layover. We did find an interesting companion in the waiting area. The Casablanca cat. I am not sure where it was traveling to, but it apparently had finished the paper!
Once on the ground in Marrakech, we took a short ride to the Four Seasons, where I will be staying for the next 5 nights before taking a three night tour to Casablanca and Fes. A beautiful view of late afternoon in the Atlas Mountains, and dinner of a beef tagine - typical local food.
