Best of travels: Moroccan Orange Juice

How can I write about the orange juice in Morocco? The moment the sweet nectar hits your lips, all words vanish from your mind as you close your eyes and mutter a nearly-inaudible “mmmmmm.” It’s very zen. The juice itself is thick like syrup without being too pulpy. It has a vibrant, sweet flavor that I don’t know why I’m still trying to describe – just go there and try it!

Every morning, vendors fill the Djemaa el-Fna (the main square in Marrakech) selling spices, fruit and bootleg CDs…among other things. The Djemma changes throughout the day and night (with snake charmers and amazing food booths when the sun goes down), but early morning is the time for fresh squeezed orange juice – the best in the world.
