My first Wedge piece - inspired by the indefatigable Kathy from Material Obsession
Out of comfort zone
|Pippi doesn't seem to mind the newbie - she still gets to sleep on the quilts.|
|RUBY - that's her "You know I hate the camera" look|
My two 4-legged girls!
|I don't think I am ever going to get a good photo of her - she has gone completely phobic of the little black thing shoved in her face and us saying 'smile Ruby' - wonder why?|
She loves to rub her whole body along your leg and gives you the most gentle and adorable chin-on-your-lap look.
I think we have found a treasure!
|A classic tagine|
|Oh the ceilings...|
|The Most Wonderful Ceiling (just tilt your head and you will get it - Blogger is being a pain spinning my photos over!)|
|Looking out our bathroom window onto the dusty laneway|
|This place is unbelievable|
|Can't get over the detail - all hand done|
|My sister is going to hate this photo - but it was the best one to show you the amazing bathroom fittings!|
|The doors were amazing!|
|The organised chaos of the Night Market called Djemaa El Fna - this is fast food at its best|
|Have to admit that the plates of meat sitting out on such a hot night made me nervous|
|Another amazing ceiling|
|What more can I say ?|
|Covered souks were a blessing - the sun was hot! This is mid-morning - best time to go - very few people and motorbikes!|
|This is a classic sweets stall - Moroccan pastries made with date, pistachio, almond and more - we just ask for a sample selection and got a huge box full, which we all pigged out on!!|
|Piles of olives and preserved lemons - YUM!|
|Typical ramshakle laneway|
|Can't you just see a quilt pattern there!!|
|I know its hot - BUT bare shoulders and lots of leg are not what should be shown for public viewing in Marrakech. If only some people would learn about the culture they are visiting and be a little bit more respectful of custom and dress. No head covering is needed for women, but loose cool covering clothing is essential. I felt happy that we had made an effort and I think we were treated with a lot of respect the whole time we were there, even when my sister and I were exploring on our own, because we showed respect.|
|The Square - hub of action day and night, though this was taken in the heat of midday sun - not so many ventured out, from a cafe/restaurant's top floors.|
|Look at that silly grin - the home cooked meal at the riad was the BEST. Chicken with olives and lemon tagine - told you they like them. |
Huge salad to begin with, and the most sweetest slices of oranges with sprinkled cinnamon to end - oh my what a feast!!
|The surprisingly modern and attractive airport - great architecture!|
