HABITS FROM AROUND THE WORLD: MAROCCO.

Morocco has a rich culture of scents, colours, sounds that mix and through which you start a journey of emotions and sensations.

It is enriched by the customs and customs of the Berbers and affected by the influences of the Islamic religion professed by the majority of the population. The traditions and lifestyle of the Moroccan land seem in contrast in many respects with those typically Western.

To know the typical customs of Morocco means to confront with a rich culinary tradition. The ways of sitting at the table are different from ours. In Morocco you eat on large sofas, sitting or semi-lying. Custom dictates that forks should be replaced by hands, especially only the first three fingers of the right hand.

Before sitting at the table, you have to wash 3 times hands, feet and face. This hygienic norm has become a religious norm and a shared habit. They serve delicacies to be enjoyed slowly and chatting in quiet ways, without ever raising your voice. The cuisine is conditioned by both Arab and Mediterranean influences. Each region has typical dishes, but generally in Moroccan cuisine are recurrent: cous-cous, Argan oil, olives, boiled or sour-sweet vegetables and home-made bread, which is consumed daily. Certainly, then the lovers of strong and decisive flavours cannot miss the camel meat.

Spices and herbs play a major role: mint, parsley, cinnamon, cumin and saffron are among the most used. Wine is not used much on Arab tables because it is forbidden by the Muslim religion. The preferred drink is green mint tea, consumed at any time of the day.

Also, if you want to practice a spa tourism you can make the hammam which is a shared bathroom, temple of relaxation and meeting place and socialization. The practice of the hammam provides a hot water bath in a very humid environment, during which you use black Aleppo soap, with a strong degreasing power. With a crine glove you proceed with a deep exfoliation of the skin; it is useful to free the pores from dead cells. At the end of the treatment to perform the last massage you choose products based on argan oil.
