'<i>Hey look! Your collar bone is showing</i>!'

Well, cosmopolitan women traveling in Morocco are not expected to dress like traditional Moroccan women, and indeed, many sophisticated or foreign-educated Moroccan women have now adopted European fashion styles themselves... esp. in Rabat and Casablanca. However, no matter how snug those pants or how long your skirt length is, you must always try and keep your collar bone covered up. I guess it's the culture thingy again....

So pack carefully. Your lovely V-neck sweaters and t-shirts, no matter how chaste (<i>ahem</i>!) you may think they look, may be interpreted as <i>risqué</i>, disrespectful OR inappropriate in Morocco. <i>I kid you not! </i>

And when you have Moroccan men tailing after you for 2 hours, I guarantee you'd definitely wisen up!!!!
