Kosher food, Shabbat, in Marrakech, Istanbul

AdinaA | Jan 5, 201103:35 AM     29

I find it quite difficult to get Jewish information on cities less frequented by shomer Shabbat tourists. And very difficult to get good information on choosing a hotel that is a reasonable walk to the synagogue, or good advice on which synagogue/neighborhood to stay in or near. Kashruth can be difficult, but finding food is generally far easier than the hotel/shul info.

I realize that this board is supposed to be for food questions. Is there a similar board or website for travel questions of this type? My Hebrew is creaky, so it would be convenient to have an English language way to discuss these questions.

My apologies for interrupting this board with a primarily non-food question.
