France by way of Morocco | Paule Attar

“When I was a child growing up in Morocco, we had so many orange trees,” Paule Attar recounts in her gorgeous, husky French accent. “As a kid, I would eat oranges fresh from the tree.. . .Any time you rub the peel over your hand, smell it and it is pure heaven!”
