El Jadida - It was Saturday 3 March 2002, when I drove to Ben Yeffu during a Spring season moving through an exceptional heat wave that melted asphalt roads like chocolate and plunged flying birds dead on the ground. Yet, I could not postpone my visit to the shrine because I was invited. In Morocco, to be a man you should keep the word you allow your tongue to utter. And I gave my word to visit the shurfa on that Saturday when they invited me.
