Although Morocco is a country of Africa, in many ways it is a country apart. It is more related to the Mediterranean than to the rest of Africa. It is mainly because of the fact that it nestles on the northwestern of Africa and is separated from the rest of the continent by Atlas Mountains and the Sahara itself. Being situated with both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines, mountainous interior, it stayed independent for centuries. However, the country have developed a rich culture blended from Arab, Berber, European and African influences. Morocco is an ethnically diverse country with a rich culture and civilization.
If you want to spend a vacation with your family in Morocco then the city of Marrakech is the best place. This city has too much to offer for every one, children, teenagers and adults. You will find many snake charmers in the streets, magicians showing their tricks, a lot of colorful markets and many more. The most interesting and enjoyment days are the days of Muslim festivals; during the festivals you will see the most out of Morocco.
Step into Fez and find yourself in a world where the medieval and the modern exist side by side. Fez el Jédid (“the New”) is the modern part of Fez whereas Fez el Bali (“the Old”) is one of the world’s best-preserved medieval cities. Amidst the sprawling streets, you can find stalls selling intricate handicrafts, leather goods, copper and brassware. Visit the Bou Inania Madersa, a fourteenth century religious college with breathtaking architecture, or the Dar-Batha museum, which features, among other things, an amazing Moroccan ceramic collection. You may also enjoy visiting the Kairaouine mosque, which was previously the largest mosque in Africa. Fez is also famous for its cuisine.
Other interesting places to visit in Casablanca Morocco are the Port of Casablanca, the Catholic Cathedral, the Casablanca Techno Park, the Twin Center, Parc de la Ligue Arabe, Lycée Lyautey, Mohammed V International Airport, and the Casablanca City Hall. Casablanca Port is considered as one of the world’s largest artificial and main ports. The Catholic Cathedral became a cultural center in 1930 after it stopped its operation in 1956 as a church. Parc de la Ligue Arabe is one of the largest parks in the city. Beside it is Cathédrale Sacré-Coeur which is an unused Mauresque architecture.
Morocco’s capital city, Rabat, may not be as well known as the other imperial cities, but it is rich in history. The city’s most famous site is Le Tour Hassan, a tower built during the reign of Almohad ruler Yacoub el Mansour in the late 12th century.

Two women use the dry riverbed of the Ounila River at the base of the ancient city of Aït Ben Haddou as a shortcut to the modern town on the opposite bank.
The fortified city, or ksar, of Aït Ben Haddou got its start in the 11th century as a trading post along the caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakesh. The existing earthen structures date from no earlier than the 17th century.
The ksar has been used as a set for many films from Oscar-winner “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962) to the TV series “Game of Thrones.”
The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Main article: Situation comedy
The situation comedy, or sitcom, has been the most common, successful and culturally significant type of television comedy. As the name suggests, these programs feature recurring characters placed in humorous situations. Since the early 1950s with I Love Lucy in the US and Hancock’s Half Hour in Britain, sitcoms have always had a special place in the hearts of viewers and gathered highly devoted followers, as the familiar characters often become beloved. Often performed before a live audience (or, in some cases, a simulated live audience in the form of a laugh track), usually filmed or taped with a multiple-camera setup, and almost always a half-hour in length, sitcoms are seldom presented as realistic depictions of life but often generate honest humor through the relationships between and ongoing development of characters. Since the debut of I Love Lucy television has never been without sitcoms and they have often been the most popular and lucrative of all program types. Even in the early 2000s, the cast of the NBC sitcom Friends were among television’s highest paid performers.
Main article: Comedy-drama
A comedy-drama, sometimes known as a dramedy, is a program that combines humor with more serious dramatic elements, aiming for a considerably more realistic tone than conventional sitcoms. These programs are shot with a single-camera setup and presented without a laugh track, and typically run an hour in length. This can refer to a genre of television or radio drama series.
Main article: Sketch comedy
Sketch comedy programs differ from sitcoms in that they do not basically feature recurring characters (though some characters and scenarios may be repeated) and often draw upon current events and emphasize satire over character development. Sketch comedy was pioneered by Sid Caesar, whose Your Show of Shows debuted in 1950 and established many conventions of the genre. American sketch comedy reached a later peak in the mid-1970s with the debut of Saturday Night Live, originally a variety program but soon devoted mostly to sketches. In the UK, two of the more successful examples are Monty Python’s Flying Circus and Little Britain.
Main article: Stand-up comedy
Stand-up comedy has been fairly well represented on television. Stand-up comedians have long been a staple of variety and late-night talk shows; indeed, talk-variety shows such as The Tonight Show traditionally open with a comedy monologue performed by the program host. Television stand-up reached a peak of popularity on British schedules with the immensely popular ITV programme The Comedians. Their style of comedy was swept away almost entirely in the Britain of the early 1980s when a new generation of stand-ups challenged what they saw as racist and sexist humour and revolutionised the form under the banner alternative comedy. In the US, stand-up comedy programs became popular on many cable television channels beginning in the mid-1980s, as such “brick wall” shows (nicknamed for the stereotypical use of a fake brick wall as a backdrop) were cheap to produce and air. Stand-up humour later had mixed fortunes on the small screen, often shunted away to the small hours or as part of a larger entertainment extravaganza.
Main article: Improvisational comedy
Improvisational comedy has recently been popular with television audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, most notably with both British and American versions of the program Whose Line is it Anyway?.
There are many UK comedies in which the format is that of a gameshow, and may give the guests a chance to perform stand up comedy to win a round. Examples of this genre include Have I Got News For You, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week and Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
Main article: Animated cartoon
Animated cartoons have long been a source of comedy on television. Early children’s programming often recycled theatrical cartoons; later, low-budget animation produced especially for television dominated Saturday-morning network programming in the US. A few prime-time animated comedies, notably The Flintstones, The Simpsons, Family Guy, successfully mixed attributes of traditional cartoons and sitcoms.
In addition to broad comedy program types, comedy often appears on television in much more subtle forms. Comedy is often a necessary part of other programming, particularly drama. Attempts at mixing comedy and drama in various combinations (sometimes known as dramedy) have been attempted over time.

What would happen to a toddler, between two and five, who is addicted to television? Studies believe that those toddlers will continue this habit into his teen years or adulthood, and spend many more hours watching television than playing outside, spending time in the classroom, or having his social life with others.
Being addicted to television has been linked to all of the following, as our toddlers are growing older and bigger:
The couch potato syndrome. Kids not only look like they’re being passive, but they are truly passive, that they even have difficulty moving their bodies away from the television. They will have very slow metabolic rates compared to kids who are more active.
Inadequate and lack of physical and intellectual skill. Being addicted to television will minimize kid’s interest on books, stories, playing outdoors – indoor, drawing, painting, and other social activities, that actually can encourage their intellectual and physical development.
Obesity and high cholesterol level. Kids with no activities, sports, and physical action, who eat only in front of the television, will definitely gain weight into obesity levels. Furthermore, obesity is related to high cholesterol levels, which is also linked into many disease and illness, now and then.
Bad influence from television program. Television programs that are not suitable for children will give bad influences, such as violence behaviors, illogical fear, and sometime lack of values. At their age, children will easily absorb everything they saw and heard.
Less effective coping skill. Children whose parents use television to avoid their toddler get cranky, upset and bored, may grow up unable to deal with the normal ebbs and flows of life. The children will tend to find an easy solution (right or wrong) for their problems.
Less imagination and creativity. Compared to reading, drawing, sponge brushing, painting and other activities that let toddlers explore their imagination, watching television explain the whole idea passively to the audience, it paints the whole picture and leaves nothing to the imagination.
Week independent play skills. Children who watch a lot of TV often can’t entertain themselves and certainly aren’t motivated to do so. Even heavy viewers don’t want to put effort into free play that requires thought and imagination.
Weaker family and social ties. Families that watch TV day in and day out may gradually drift apart. With everyone in a TV trance so much of the time, their is often little interaction, little sharing of ideas, feelings and values.
