People Known and Unknown
These three women sitting on plastic stools in the square are amongst the many who do henna designs.
I have two particular women I go to - I think I'd get in a lot of trouble if they discovered I went to anyone else.
The characters in the colorful costumes sell water which people drink from little metal cups. Their hats are very extravagant.
An old man in traditional costume heads to the mosque for afternoon prayers. He is walking through the tunnel just by our house.
This young man sells the most delicious little pastries on derb Dabachi.
Both he and his brother speak excellent English.
During Ramadan last year the bakery turned into an old clothes shop and I thought it had gone for ever.
Things seem to come and go in Marrakech. This one returned.
Someone we do know very well.
Ismail in our kitchen cutting bread before a supper party.
If I'm too lazy to cook, Ismail's mother cooks a tagine at her house - which is delivered piping hot to our door at 7:30 pm.
Along with salad, bread and olives.
An excellent, painless, wonderful way to entertain.
