MARRAKECH

A few pictures from my last trip to Marrakesh in March 2016. My first visit to Morocco was in 1996, when we lived in Rabat for the summer with Thea who was 16 months old, and I was pregnant with Nina. We had wonderful days, visiting Casa, Essaouira, Fez, while Arthur was working on World Bank project. In fact I had so much fun that I almost gave birth 2 months early. Just like India, Morocco has such skilled artisans in many fields that it's always a beautiful experience to go back. The embroideries of Fez, the tassels and hand made buttons, the basketry, but also the weaving, metalwork and the kindness and the humor of the people are unforgettable.

and the cats of the Medina...
