what do ramadan in morocco and wine in morocco have in common?

…really not much at all, to tell the truth. Alcohol is of course forbidden in Islam, so Moroccan liquor stores (which technically are there to serve non-Muslims) close down completely during the month of fasting. However, I recently wrote a little something on both topics here (though not at the same time)!

A little shameless self-promotion: part of what’s kept me busy lately is that I’ve been writing things elsewhere. See, I’m still around! In any case, HeyMorocco.com has lots of great travel information for anyone interested in visiting Morocco (that should be everyone! Really! Go!). You can find my own contributions here, in an essay about the joy of experiencing Muslim holidays as a non-Muslim American – especially relevant right now, since Ramadan is drawing to a close this week! – and here, where I wax poetic about the Moroccan wines I came to know and love so well.
