when you get to essaouira, consider yourself lucky if you can see your hand in front of your face. this moroccan sea port has a penchant for thick fog -- an incorrigible event the locals call "da bab" (murmured under the breath, with a subtle head shake).
rather than braille-ing your way through the kasbah's whitewashed corridors, pull up a chair and try the national special -- couscous.
