Cinnamon City is the story of Miranda's purchase of an extremely dilapidated riad in the Medina of Marrakech; of the chaos that ensued; of the (entirely predictable) ensuing debacle with builders and two nefarious managers who absconded with all her money; of Miranda and her partner Dan's journeys through the north of Africa in white vans that break down as soon as they hit Tangiers; of a family Christmas from hell in a house with few modern conveniences; and of her love affair with all things Moroccan, and with Marrakech in particular. A lyrical and evocative account of the restoration of the riad, which also contains information on the history and culture of Marrakech, tips on where to eat, where to shop, and where to stay.

I hated this book, not really any insight into the City of Marrakech. Poorly written and not very interesting at all, shame as I was looking forward to it. Read full review
