Life in Derb Djedid.
Lots of photos of Marrakesh in Morocco.
Daily life, decor. Architecture
I am a complete sucker for camels of all descriptions - especially images of them. Note the spelling of Baghdad.
Seeing a name spelled differently always makes me wonder if this is the particular spelling in a certain language or an error. ;-)Camels, would you believe if if I told that I have camel images on my blog too? You'll need a little patience scrolling unfortunately.
I think spelling transliterated from Arabic is pretty random.For example the medina - old part of a city - can also be written madina.Marrakech or Marrakesh - take your pick.We live on Derb Djedid - new lane - though it is 500 years oldDjedid= new can be spelledjdidjedidI think the vowels are extras. Very confusing.Kadim=oldalso somethings lakadim (the old)
Great signs. That is actually a very beautiful painting of a rat. :-)
Yes, the rat was wonderful. That's what I noticed first.Couldn't imagine what it was for!Real Pied Piper stuff!
