advent calendar bakery

Things I love to do in the mornings (although I must admit that the image has been taken night-time) in Rabat is passing by the bakery to get myself some sweet bread. Wonderful stuff. I very much like the fillings with almonds, but there is much more. Not to talk about the pastery, amazing. Yesterday, at a seminar organised by Transparency Maroc and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the pastery for coffee break was great. At press conferences, such as yesterday’s by Transparency Maroc, or the one presenting the installation of the Moroccan anti-corruption agency, you usually have tea, coffee and pastery for the journalists. I’d love to be a journalist here for that (for other reason’s I wouldn’t).

advent calendar couscous

It’s Friday. What do you have for lunch? It’s couscous day. In the land of couscous, traditionally you’ll get your couscous only on Friday. Of course, there are places where you might get the dish on other days, too, mainly places frequented by tourists, though. Why is that? I had the same question but I haven’t received one matching answer yet. It doesn’t really matter: as long as it tastes great.
