We spent most of our time in Asilah, a northern city about 15 minutes south of Tanger. We stayed with Mehdi’s uncle and family. He’s a wonderful painter and sculptor and it was very inspiring to say the least. We were very warmly welcomed and feel a part of their wonderful family now. Their kids were fantastic and his wife made us the most amazing home cooked food. We spend the evening drinking wine, playing music, and hanging out his atelier, which is located next to their beautiful house.
There’s way too much to write about in detail but in short we experienced a very special Morocco. And although I only got a taste of it in the short four days we were there, I loved it and I want more. I plan to go back again as soon as possible.
