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.
Even on the roof.
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.
Last door post, for this week anyway, these doors have been brought to you today all the way from Tangier, strictly specking it’s two doors and an arch. I’m surprised how many door photo’s I’ve got, a lot of comments yesterday said “we all love a door”
I’m off on holiday next week so may not be able to post, but we are staying in the grounds of a castle so hopefully I will get a few good shots of the British country side, have a great weekend.
The Kasbah – The Kasbah is located high on a hill in Tangier with some good views of the ocean. The old Sultan’s palace (built in the 17th Century) lies within the Kasbah’s walls, is known as Dar El Makhzen and is now a museum that houses fine examples of Moroccan art.
After walking around the Old town in Tangier we came across a bustling market, loads of noise from all the haggling and the smell of food in the air, it was great, I grabbed a cold bottle of water off one of the vendors and as I took a swig I came face to face with this cool Sunflower, it almost seemed out of place.
Spent the day in Tangier, made my way straight to the old part of town, met up with a local guide (about €10.00) and off we went. I think without a guide you would be lost in minutes, although that could be fun. After parting with €150.00 for a rug the owed of the shop let me onto his roof where i took this photo.
