Between Essaouira and Agadir you will find the famous Argan trees. Small towns in this area often live off the production of argan oil and its related products. In fact, you have two types of argan oil: the pure oil that is suitable for cosmetic purposes, and the argan oil for consumption purposes. The latter is pressed from seeds after being slightly roasted. Hence the specific taste.
The Ramadan, in 2018 from May 16 to June 14, is a special month for Muslims. It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the month in which Muslims fast for about thirty days. The exact time of this month shifts by about 11 days each year compared to the western (or better: Gregorian) era. Are you in Morocco during Ramadan? Then there are a few things that are useful to know.
The Old Medina has just very narrow streets. not big enough for our cars.
To make it possible for you to show the Medina we asked a friend of us, Oussama, an official guide, to arrange guided tours in the Medina special for our guests.
Today I add a day-tour to my website. A day tour Tou Oualidia. This is a beautiful and quiet little town 200 km from Marrakesh at the Westcoast of Morocco.
There is also a fantastic restaurant to eat oysters. Very fresh oysters.
Yesterday we had a fantastic lunch at Restaurant La Table from Hotel Royal Mansour.
Today I already wrote something about Fés as the start of next week's trip to Fés.
Tonight two German guests booked a five-day trip to Fès, one of the four royal cities. We will leave on 23 March and we will be back five days later. I will try to give an impression of Fès with a number of photographs.
The route will run via Casablanca, Rabat and Meknes. The last two cities are also royal cities as well as Marrakesh.
