Publisher's Summary

Morocco - it simmers with exotic sounds, smells, flavors, and spices. From its souks (markets) to the medinas (ancient walled cities) to the kasbahs (fortified villages/citadels) to the riads (homes built around a courtyard) and to its unique cuisine. The majesty of the snowcapped High Atlas Mountains; the Palmeraie - acre upon acre of stately date palms; and the pristine, virgin, undulating sands of the Sahara. Journey with me to this exotic land, where ancient medieval sights and traditions thrive and endure.

Not Very Useful

In this short book, Ms. Ingel's strength is her enthusiasm for the beauty of the country and its people. That being said, it is not particularly useful for everything she experiences to be stunning, beautiful, delicious, fragrant or charming. There is precious little context here in terms of history, religion or geography and her time here is very short leaving out major swaths of the country like Rabat, Casablanca, the two coastlines or Agadir. Her descriptions of Fez, Marakesh, Chefchouene, and Aït Benhaddou are very nice. About 10% of the recording at the end is an excerpt from her upcoming book about India and a chance meeting of a wedding procession on the street. That makes no sense.
