At the souk a couple of days ago, I ran into an older gentleman from Belgium who immediately began raving about these delicious peas. He was so delighted about the fact that they were so fresh and likely picked that morning. We stood in the bustling souk for some time chatting about traveling and life in Morocco. He had such a zest for life and told me about how he has a bicycle here he rides around from town to town (not an easy feat, I tell you!). It was such a beautiful moment in time, to pause in the midst of a chaotic souk and connect and share with another being. Needless to say, he inspired me to get a kilo of these tasty little guys, and I sit here, enjoying them fresh from the pod, savouring the moment.
