... lives gladly. During my visit, Fatima, a woman my friends and I had only heard of from a mutual friend, went above and beyond to welcome us into her home. She and her friends explained how they love having guests and that in Morocco homes are often designed with the intention to be spacious enough for visitors.
The potential underlying reason for such a sharp divide between the etiquettes surrounding houseguests in the two cities ...
... but at least it was free, then walked up, up, up to the Castelo de Sao Jorge.
