Our guide left us up the street where hawkers were attacking tourists with hands full of gaudy ersatz jewelry, fossils, relics, cheap stuff, and we didn't want or need any of that so we strolled down to street to find this beautiful terrace, from which...More

You can sit there with young Moroccan people who dreamed about Europe, watching it and seeping coffee.
