Switch off your phone alarm clock and answer the morning call to prayer. Beyond the ‘Rose City’ and the blues of Chefchaouen, An√© Strydom takes us through the pastel spectrum of Moroccan street life. Sip on mint tea with tonnes of sugar in it (or request it without, it’s better this way) as you strategise how to avoid direct contact with the snakes in Jemaa el-Fnaa square. The snake charmers will make this impossible, so eat pastries instead and think about what a great idea fresh orange juice is as a family of four, and another and another whizz past aboard single scooters. Haggle for a bargain in the souks, and remember the look of disappointment on the trader’s face when you accept his original price without hesitation. Consider vegetarianism when you get caught unaware by Eid al-Adha and witness one too many sheep slaughtered in the street. Have a drink to calm your nerves but discover a new found appreciation for staying out late with a clear, sober mind. You’re going to get lost (but that’s the best part). Take photos of cats on film – the ‘likes’ will reward you later.
