As in the one that stays at with Caroline at Dar Azaouia, and the one that doesn't. Pity the latter, they would miss out on a wonderful experience. Not just the B&B......but Caroline's wit, cultural perceptions and unending hospitality.
I still don't know where she came from, other than Belgium. And in the end it didn't matter. It was an amazing experience. She made us feel both at home, and more importantly, at ease. Assailia is and has been the best surprise of Morocco. Having lived here for 5 months "riad's" and "Medina's" can get a little stale. Dar Azaouia completely changed that.
Caroline, quite apparently, filled her her B&B with her heart: A coating of warmth, tantilizing scents from the kitchen, beer from Belgium and other exotics that make you melt into the kush sofas......
After the night enveloped my wife and I, Caroline walked us to our room and started a fire, for the night was cool. We fell asleep to the cackle of a roaring fire in our quiet, impeccably clean and comfortable room. I slept until the morning, which hasn't occurred since I can't recall.
Upon waking, I descended the stairs to find Caroline in the kitchen prepping our breakfast. She poured me, I do not embellish, the greatest cup of coffee I have ever had in my life. The richness and taste coated my mouth like butter.....as you can imagine the rest of breakfast was just as stellar. Bravo. Bravo. We'll be back.....
