A Time in Casablanca

The movies are all about adventure and imagination. It is especially deep romantic classics like Casablanca that resemble a piece of gold in a treasure chest. The mind conjures up images of an exotic, mystical place like Casablanca - the perfect place for a romantic interlude. It is a place with plenty of history, intrigue and wonder. One minute you could be on the beach sipping a delightful mint tea and the next minute be shopping in the exotic, yet dangerous bazaars crowded with colourful spices, drinks, sweets, condiments and fashion accessories. Indulge on Turkish delight or enjoy the walk through the fruit and vegetable markets.

What a spectacular journey through a timeless and culture rich city.

The classical romance of Casablanca with Humphrey Bogart is unforgettable for those of all ages, cultures or religions. It is a romance set in a historical place rich in beauty and aura. Morocco is a country surrounded by colourful mosques and temples - the perfect symbols of religion and culture. It has also been described as one of the fashion spots of Africa with the fascinating blend of cultures forming unique designs and artwork.

As you enter Morocco, let the journey begin. Travel through the crowded streets to watch the snake vendors, the acrobats and performers. Walk through the malls full of people busy looking for a classic restaurant.. Sit down at a restaurant to watch the Belly Dancers perform their best dances and attract crowds of clientelle.

It is full of mystery and intrigue.

The story of a handsome, intelligent man like Humphrey Bogart meeting a young woman like Ingrid Bergman in an exotic and exciting place like Casablanca seems so adventurous. It seems like the perfect time and place for a love story.

As it is set in World War II, it is the story of one man torn between love and virtue. It would be an almost impossible choice to make: choose between the love of his life or continue the fight with the Nazis. It is certainly a film that is anything out of the ordinary. Also, it has achieved worldwide acclaim and incredible success due to the location, actors and story. It was popular in the earlier centuries and continues to be popular right now.
