Good morning....
Thank you for all your votes and great comments...glad you liked my fezGrinGrin...a special thank you to Maureen (HarrietH) for her UA...much appreciated
Todays images are all from the Souks in Marrakesh....Souk Semmarine sells everything from brightly coloured bejewelled sandals and slippers to jewellery and kaftans...Souk Ableuh contains stalls with chillies, capers pickles and olives...
The Souks are a honeycomb of intricately connected alleyways and has a dizzying number of stalls.
They also have stunning carpets...we spent hours in a showroom and nearly singed the CC when we bought two to send home.
Have a great day...
