    I do not know where to start; so, I will start here. I am returning to Morocco in April of this year and went to our local bookstore seeking, yet another book on Morocco. I found your book Mint Tea and Minarets. I already have had for many years your Kasbah Cooking and so I recognized your name knowing that I would be in for a treat.

    To go back in time to last year, I celebrated my 75th birthday in July, 2018 and for that celebration, the alumnae of the Kenitra American High School (I taught there for 6 years–1967-1973.) decided they would come to Santa Fe, New Mexico where I now reside as an artist (davidlorenbass.com) and celebrate with me. Fifty-four of those students honored me with their presence at my party, complete with taco truck parked in the driveway and two festive bars. One couple, Nancy and Majid Slaoui, who were high school sweethearts, married and have lived in Rabat all these years, raising 3 children. They invited me to return to Morocco and use their home in Temara Plage as a base of operations for more paintings of Morocco.

    I made up my mind to return to the place where I am so beholding to for creating the person I have become. I would use the source materials created on the trip to fill out the rest of my painting days.

    I started re-reading many of the guide books I keep around. I decided I wanted to go to Azemmour as it was not so touristy. Finding your book was such a God-send!! In researching the area in my books, I ran across a passage that mentioned an abandoned French auberge on the Oum el Rbia outside Azemmour. My fantasies kicked in and I began to dream of finding that place and, possibly, purchasing it and make it over into an auberge once again. I went to Google Earth and found Mehioula and moved up and down the Oum el Rbia and I found some structures, but I was never convinced that I had found the right place. And then, TONIGHT, what should I read but your visit to the abandoned auberge!!

    I have not finished your book; I was just too excited about what I had already read not to let you know how much your book has touched me.
