Of course the photos have come out in the reverse order.
Anyway the last two - or first two - are continuing the idea of the wonderful pointy -hooded robe.
A multi-purpose cover up for cold weather - you can roll the hood to suit.
New Year's Eve was pretty festive this year- last year it was a bit subdued since it was Eid el Kabir and most people were home.
This year the streets were full of cake sellers and toy sellers.
A big favorite - on Dec 31st - was a scarlet plastic inflatable Santa - probably made in China.
We had dinner at our friend D's house where there was a roaring log fire, excellent company - including two chefs - and lots to drink.
The menu included smoked salmon, oysters, chicken, kidneys, apple pie and English trifle. Wonderful.
Walking home, to derb Dabachi through the square we tried to avoid drunk people.
We were wished "Bon Anne" by all and sundry.
HERE'S TO A PEACEFUL AND WONDERFUL NEW YEAR
