Morocco is a surprising land of sun, surf, sand, and even snow. A moderate Islamic country caught between two worlds. It is trying to hold onto its past while trying to accommodate the winds of economic and social globalisation that are sweeping the world. And being just across the Mediterranean from France, Spain and Italy means that Morocco cops the full force of the sirocco. In the ancient city of Fez Pria meets a poor tanner trying to earn enough to feed his family by working in the old leather tannery using methods unchanged in centuries. In Rabat, the new capital, he catches up with the modern Morocco, young people who despite their fondness for the west, still recognise the value of their cultural heritage.
