    ... and-sorry long lunch together to sink back cokes and plates of fries to atone for the festivities. Being Friday there were additional prayers going on and we sat for a time outside our hotel watching those praying during the day. Throughout the trip Ramadan has been a key part of the lives of those around us: the sleepy run of life during the day as shops remained closed and restaurants have no reason to trade; the bustle of the post-break fast evening and cities coming ...

    ... opulent residence of the Grad Vizier Bou Ahmed and named after the favourite of his 28 wives. The diplomatic area enjoyed a beautiful small garden and like all Moroccan buildings it was bedecked with stunning mosaic work and ornately decorated cedar ceilings.

The area is unsurprisingly tremendously popular with hikers, with beautiful grassy plateaus and a couple of waterfalls fed by the last of the snowmelt. After lunch at ...

    I can't tell you why, but I was in love with Morocco before I even knew anything about the country. I just imagined it oozing of culture and character. Me being me, I made practically no plan about where to visit during my 2 weeks in Morocco. I typically trust word of mouth much more than Lonely Planet, Tripadvisor, or any of those travel information companies (although they are quite informative and give you a good basis). On the day I left Belgium, ...

    ... the size of the biscuit quarters. When her friend extended her hand for some too, she was flatly rebuffed. Fair trade.

    We hauled our way up through the dry acidic landscape. Huge grey blue river boulders rested where the water or ice had left them. A small cafe, of plastic patio chairs, greeted us at the top of the pass. The backdrop was huge, vast grey brown mountains, peppered with small quilts of houses and snow. The stroll down was fast as ...
