Just outside our Door




Musicians often wander playing music in the derb.  Here is one right outside our house.


His music is haunting and lovely.


This shot was taken very early in the morning when few people are about. 
I think this man is on his way to the mosque.

It is amazing.I don't know how they make a tune with this kind of flute.I had one I got from one of Asian countries. Nothing comes out no matter how I tried,but they could make a malodious tune.Thanks for the post.

Lovely! If I open my door early in the morning I am more likely to be greeted by an oppossum snarling then music of another culture.

How nice to be surrounded by music. It's just bird and tree song where I am.

Oh how special When I was in Marocco we saw a man playing and a snake came out of a basket I thought these things happened only in movies

Merci pour ce joli blog.

Hi Elizabeth! Indigo here. I've been enjoying the photos, they've reminded me again what a memorable trip I had to Marrakech a couple of years ago. My experiences were mixed but unforgettable; I hope to go back sometime soon.

I wrote about them here (the first of a five-parter): http://bit.ly/3dXFnJ

Thanks again, Indigo

Ahhh Marrakech. Nearly bought a riad there a few years ago...but it's just less noisy on the pictures than in reality...

Morocco is a Very Nice Place to Visit and i like your pictures of Morocco

MariaH said...

Just happened upon your blog and I love it! I spent seven years traveling too and from Morocco, many years ago and I love looking at photos that bring back such rich memories. My son, who is half Moroccan, also loves to learn as much as he can about his heritage. I have an extra soft spot for Marrakesh as said son is a product of one of our trips there :-)
