32°N 08°W - Marocco - Nana Mint
Accord I - Sacred Hospitality
Hospitality is sacred in the area around Marrakech; and this is only one of its many wonderful traditions. Another is the famous cerem- ony of freshly brewed nana mint tea, that is prepared and served with plenty of sugar to welcome guests. Its fresh sweet aromatic fragrance merges with the delicate fruity aroma of watermelon served as a side dish. So just the right atmosphere for sharing the lastest News from the villages is created.
Accord II - Desert Oasis
The imposing mountains of the Atlantic range on the one side and the influence of the Mediterranean on the other create an extreme climate in this region. The areas regularly reached by water become places of stunning splendor. Oases of vegetation where dates and sweet figs grow; their fruity aroma mingles harmoniously with the herbaceous and floral scent of jasmine and honey-sweet roses.
Accord III - The Story Tellers
In the evening, the city squares are filled with street artists and their outlandish performances. The most appreciated ones are the storytellers, who gather around them large and passionate audien- ces. Their stories seem to acquire a life on their own. While lis- tening to them, women have their hands, feet and other parts of the body painted with henna whose leaves release sweet and wa- tery-green notes. Some of the stories are thereby brought to live on the skin through symbols and drawings.
