Another great posting
I lived in Berkeley (UC) in the late 50's and early '60's and loved the area but as a student I didn't see half the places you have seen in the time you've been there. We've been back many times but still have missed some of the places you mention. It truly is a unique and lovely city and area. We are just starting to plan a trip to Sicily and Morocco next September so we will use your Morocco blog as our planning guide. I'll keep you posted. Sonja
