Medina   22 comments

This will probably be my last post until after Christmas as I have loads to do, I must even get out and do some xmas shopping at some point, I was trying to think of what to post about when I looked next to me and saw a rug I purchased in Tangier a while back, A mate and I had hired a local guide and were walking around the old Medina in Tangier, he took us to a carpet shop, I’m pretty sure it was owned by his uncle. As you can see by the next few shots there was plenty to choose from.

Tangier Rugs


And More.

Tangier Rugs


Still More.

Tangier Rugs


Even on the roof.

Tangier Rugs

And you may well asks what we were doing on the roof, as part of the sales pitch the owner took us up there to show us the view.



I think it was worth it.



And it worked because I can see the rug from where I’m sitting now.

Have a great Christmas.

  10. How much colour – the roof shots are the business

  11. Mark, you give the carpets a nice sense of scale here, coupled with the people and the cityscape! I haven’t been to Tangier, but I wonder how it compares to Marrakech or Fez?
