CINNAMON CITY is exotic Marrakech where the smell of spices, the colour and the sheer exuberance of the lifestyle overwhelm and dazzle Miranda Innes and her partner.

I am not a particular fan of 'Anywhere in the world is better than Britain and I'm going to detail why' books, a genre popularised by Peter Mayle all those years ago in Provence.
But having skimmed through France, Italy and Greece in various ways I thought Northern Africa might prove more alluring. Wrong.

Marrakech may be exotic but Cinnamon City is rather dull.
