I had flown to Casablanca as that's the main entry point
from North America,
and then continued on to Tangier.
I continued from there by train to
one of Morocco's four imperial cities.
Vast fortification walls with enormous, elaborate gateways. The city of the madly cruel Moulay Ismail is built on a grand scale. Meknès is 7° west of London, but it looks like what I imagine old Central Asian cities would look like.
