  • The sigh of the Moor

  • Excerpt:

    The Dutch couple, Hessel and Sanne, are holidaying in Andalusia, Spain. They go for a walk, but get lost. They meet a bank robber, Ángel, and his English wife, Betty. Hessel and Sanne end up staying the night with Ángel and Betty. They smoke a joint and after a while Ángel brings out a mysterious paste. Hessel takes some of this paste, which he calls the sage of the ghosts, it's made from the plant: Salvia divinorum. It is a hallucinogenic that transports Hessel into the past. In doing so, Hessel is confronted with himself and his youth. Hessel is not averse to mind expanding substances and the history teacher in him is interested in Andalusia’s Arabic past. In the ruin of Ángel and Betty he has a strange encounter with Boabdil, the last Sultan of Granada and his then deceased wife, Morayma.
