What the World Costs

On the way through the medina, I stopped at my favorite pâtisserie for la balle. The "bullet" is a large spiced cake pop covered in chocolate and nuts.  The spiced cake interior comes chilled.  It is immaculate, and for 3 dirhams (30 cents) it is a steal.

The snack gave me the fortitude to reach my daily orange juice stand.  The quotidian melange of fresh squeezed oranges and grapefruit (pamplemoose, my favorite French word) for 4.5 dirham (75 cents);

The best things in life may indeed be free, but I can come up with some real treasures for under a buck.
