    Most Moroccans are very proud of their new King Mohamed 6. This king put Moroccon on the right path of democracy, human rights, economic development. During the Arab spring, the only revolution seen in Morocco was an extraordinary Economic revolution, creating more jobs and improving peoples living conditions. Long live the king!! in Arabic you should say: Aash Al-Malik!

    The dreaded hole in the floor

    So far in Morocco I had managed to escape the local toilet. Until Ouarzazate that is. I won't go into detail, the one I used was uncomfortably small and I felt pretty unwell beforehand, lets just say I was glad when it was over!

    Drink orange juice on the Sunday Market

    Drink orange juice on the Sunday Market

    On sundays and during the orange season do like locals do and enjoy a tasty and freshly squeezed orange juice in the Sunday souk (market). 5 dirhams for a big glass.
