From Paris to Rabat

I had my first tantalising taste of Morocco when I visited its capital, Rabat, a few weeks ago. I ate more food than I believed possible, bargained for gifts to bring back to Paris, took long early evening walks and drank several cups of ‘nous nous’ (a special version of Moroccan Cappuccino). Traces of the influence of Paris are difficult to miss – the city’s café’s, artisan-run shops and the indelible mark of French bureaucracy. A follow up trip to see what the rest of the country has to offer is officially pencilled in – can’t wait!
