The first photograph is mine, taken near the bus stop on Blvd. Mohammed V in Marrakech.

This second one is a beautiful photo by my friend UmmLuz (mother of Luz/light) who has just visited Essouira and who has promised me many more pictures.......stay tuned.

Magic Windows

The top photo is from last summer's summer rental outside Essouira.
The whole house had weird colors but bags of charm.

The picture below is one of my favorite photos of our little house.
When we arrived all the windows were yellow glass with a design in it.
Plain glass is much prettier and multicolored more exciting.
So I went up to the glass cutters and had them cut me lots of panes of pure colored glass.
The bathroom walls were pink tadellakt (sort of polished plaster).
The reflctions change during the course of the day.
