Rabat - Over 10 million tourists visited Morocco in 2013, the Minister of Tourism—then Lahcen Haddad—officially announced to the international media. This came as great news for both the Moroccan treasury and Moroccan politicians. Morocco is land of peace and stability, of rest and enjoyment. For some it is a paradise on earth, for others it is a land of exoticism and orientalism.
