Leap Day List

These things have changed in Rabat lately:
1. The medina is now full of knockoff Crocs
2. One out of every five teenagers is dressed in a Moroccan version of Oakland indie rocker circa 2002
3. The other four out of every five are no longer dressed in knockoff Dolce and Gabbana, or if they are, it is no longer in three-inch letters
4. The typewriter guys at Bab al-Had are back, but they are no longer in the Bab
5. All of the city walls have been "restored" with the injudicious application of Marrakech-red spraycrete. The walls are now boring.
