road of 1000 kasbahs

Any guess as to where The Gladiator was filmed?  Morocco.  How about The Jewel of the Nile?  Morocco. Or Lawrence of Arabia? That's right. Morocco.

To be more specific, though, each of those movies (and more) were filmed in the small town of Ouarzazate, high in the Atlas Mountains. Narrowing it down even further, at one of the innumerable kasbahs dotting the road that runs right through the town.

So like Russell Crowe and Peter O'Toole, we rocked it.
