really liked it

Not too shabby a travel-guide, considering it's the first English one I've come across. Everything in there seems to be accurate..I wish there were more photos but...
There are quite a few places I would have personally added in there, but maybe it's for the best. Some places ( example: the little shop that supposedly sells plastic baskets on Rue Moh. Khemisti but actually has the best money exchange rates on the black market &, even better, randomly also sells masses of great vintage French/Spanish books and magazines abandoned by European immigrees after the civil war) are best kept a secret.
All in all, great for those who want to explore a truly beautiful country. Oh & the paragraph on "Hittisme" cracked me spot on!
