Assilah, Morocco, 15-17 July 2010

Assilah, less than an hour's drive from Tangier, is one of Morocco's gems. It's also lucky to be the home town of former Foreign Minister Mohamed Benaissa, who has organized a world famous cultural festival there every summer for 32 years. In fact, there's much more to it than culture. It goes on for most of the month and it's like a relaxed Davos, with dignitaries flying in from every part of the planet to spend a day or two participating in panels discussing global issues, attending concerts, dining with friends and strolling on the beach.
