Americans are always seeking that which is new, so it is the more remarkable that so few of our countrymen visit the land of the Moors, which has of late loomed so large in the affaires of the world. And when we consider that Tangier, the diplomatic capital of the empire, is but three and half hours' sail from Gibraltar, where many of the White Star, Hamburg-American and other great liners put in constantly, we are still more astonished.

Re: Couscous: A Moroccan Tradition
Scott, Your blog bought back some nostalgic memories for me. When I go traveling, its all about the food and the memories that are triggered when I try and re-create a dish i stumbled upon on my travels(without much success).

It was just the other night that I was paging through my album, the photos depicting the utter chaos of the market streets and the beautiful colors on display. It was a visual spectacle. The food was a gastronomic spectacle. My personal favorite dish while visiting Morocco was the lamb tagine with dates. The tenderness of the lamb coupled with the sweetness of the dates was a mere delight and surprise to my palate. Thank you for helping me relive my Morocco experience. Morocco is a must-see travel destination and for more information visit www.essentialtravel.co.uk/magazine/country-guides/morocco/travel-to-morocco.asp for some great travel tips and facts about Morocco.
