from a rooftop in larache

Larache is quickly becoming our favourite weekend getaway— it's only about two hours north of Rabat, on the way to Tangier. Though there's a seedy element to the town, we've found a lovely place to stay, beautiful wetlands to explore, and delicious seafood.

Larache was once home to the French writer Jean Genet, whom I have yet to read— although these trips north have certainly piqued my curiosity. It seems the town is a point of pilgrimage for writers and French tourists, some of whom will stop at nothing to dig up information on Genet's personal life— we've heard some interesting stories...
