In Marrakesh, it’s the once a month Berber market, “will show you it”. They either direct you to a carpet shop where they hope to get commission, or take you somewhere out of the way where they demand money. Desperate youth, desperate lives. In Fez,...More

Incredible Merinide palace of the 14th century with extremely refined decoration. Just worth having a meal there for the great setting. My favourites were the starters. Among them a great beet salad perfumed with strawberriers and orange juice and a courgettes dish with fresh coriander....More
