When I was 19, I fell in love with an indie Kate Winslet film called Hideous Kinky. It was about a young English woman who moves with her two small daughters to Morocco and gets lost in the soul of the place. I watched it over and over, taking in the colorful souks, the music, the sufi poetry, the vast desert and mountain landscapes, pink city walls shaded with orange blossoms and roses and silver pots steaming with sweet mint tea.
There is an essence in Morocco that you have to experience to understand. Yves St Laurent said that Morocco taught him color. Jimi Hendrix found inspiration for Castles in the Sand there. Bob Dylan, Kerouac and countless others have found profound inspiration in Morocco.
Second to hopping on the next plane to Marrakech, the Moroccan Tea Ceremony embodies all that is Morocco. The whirling sensory excitement, the ritual, the gathering of friends old and new.
