As I said, quite a few films were shot here. Wikipedia has a list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...t_A%C3%AFt_Benhaddou Ouarzazate is the centre of Morocco's film industry. We actually visited one of the studios - but Ait-Ben-Haddou is far more interesting.

In the UK there's an outcry - when a family of Asian origin return from vacation with their 13 year old daughter married to an older man. And legally not acceptable. I remember when I was kid, hearing stories of how English fathers were keen to get their daughters married off too. Tales from around 1900 I suppose!

I'm planning to go back to Marrakesh and 'beyond' for a 10 day photo shoot in October and will try to find out whether the Bride Fair still runs. The young girls resplendent in their rouged-cheek make up were so pretty and with their enormous amber beads were virtual "dolls" and I would love to go back and see it all again.

GarryRF raises an interesting point about how our perceptions change and differ on the age of "maturity."

Louis XIII of France became king at 8; he assumed full power at 15, then the age of majority. His son, Louis XIV, followed the same path; at 15 he returned from exile during the revolt of the...

These goats were spotted by seesaw along the road to Essaouira last summer, leaping agilely into the trees to feed on the leaves.
