A few weeks ago I was re-watching Sex and the City 2 on DVD. I remember quite enjoying it in theatres . It helped to build up my excitement about Morocco since I was leaving the following week. But re-watching I have to say, not only was it boring, it was extremely offensive.
I remember talking with my tour guide about this movie as we travelled on camel through the Sahara (one of the scenes from the movie). While the movie was shot in Morocco but “set” in Abu Dhabi, he quickly and frankly let me know that the movie is offensive. I couldn’t agree more and I love Sex and the City.
If you are going to travel in another country, respect the local culture.
Or risk embarrassment.
