History stops in
Rabat and does not leave. It appears on the corner of an alley, in a
stall of oriental slippers and poufs fragrant with the scent of leather,
in a carpet auction. It impregnates every stone of the Oudaya Kasbah,
fortress of indomitable Andalous Corsairs of XVII century. Nothing is
more pleasurable than imagining their exciting lives, delightfully
installed at the Moorish coffee, savoring gazelle horns (Moroccan cake)
with a mint tea, looking at the boats which dance in the Bou Regreg
river at the bottom of the Sale city ramparts.
