Sights and sounds of Morocco through time-lapse

(CBS News) Wow, I just realized that it's been over a week since we went on our last vicarious vacation. Which is simply way too long in my books. So pack your (imaginary) bags and grab that (also, imaginary) passport and let's set sail right now for the vibrant streets of Morocco through the time-lapse video above. (Yeah, that's right, we're traveling by imaginary boat this time.)

The mesmerizing and fast-paced journey (with music by John Adams) entitled "Watchtower of Morocco" was posted by Vimeo user Leonardo Dalessandri who writes:

Walking through the streets of Marrakech, Essaouira, Fes el Bali and Casablanca.. taking in the sights and sounds of this beautiful place. I just wish my camera had shown the true beauty of Morocco.

If that doesn't display the true beauty of Morocco, then I don't even know what to say... because that was simply stunning in my books, Leonardo! Thank you so much for sharing this vicarious travel experience with us and the Internet at large.
