    I’m so jealous! I was there in February and had an amazing time. I’m still working through my stash of spices! Have fun.

    Any foodie recomendations, Kieran? You were in Marrakesh, weren’t you? We’re going there, Casablanca and Essasouria. Well, that’s the plan at the moment. Who knows what may happen!

    Don’t be shy about eating fish on the pier in Essaouria. There are annoying touts trying to get you to sit and eat but once you do they are friendly, and the fish is fab – you can pick the actual fish and they whack it on the grill. There’s a picture here. I don’t know if you found a place to stay, but we splurged and stayed in Villa Quieta, which out of town on the beach and brilliant service.In Marrakesh, I didn’t have anything too spectacular, but didn’t go too far wrong either. The orange juice in the square is fabulous…

    Thanks for that tip, Kieran. It’s so easy to get fed up with touts and leggit when, if you persevered, it could turn into a great experience. We’re arriving in Casablanca on Sunday, going via a wedding in England, and not at all booked into anything at yet! Should be, to say the least of it, interesting…
