What I liked

I Heart Maroc had me completely enthralled and enjoying Azo Safo’s recollections of her experience in a little village in the south of Morocco. The same way a good book or movie can coax you into wanting to know more about a place, Zoubida, as she was known there, told a funny and heartfelt story that had me wondering all kinds of things. What were the dwelling spaces in this village like exactly? How slow or fast did time go by in a day? What does the little boy that was her favorite student look like now? You can’t help but laugh out loud at Zoubida’s inevitable cultural faux pas but you might end up wiping away a small tear like I did at her more poignant memories. I Heart Maroc gives a fun energetic peek into a fascinating experience. It’ll get you right in the heart.

What I didn't like

What could use improvement? Maybe the place could slow down a bit here and there.

My overall impression

An upbeat and beautiful collection of memories told with fondness, humor and love.
