le sud

we have returned from a week in the dry and dusty scapes of south-eastern morocco... my first time in that part of the country and oh what a pleasure it was to wander the ancient and labyrinthine kasbah, smell spices and tap our toes to local tunes at dusk, for fellowshipping with friends, making art, bargaining for handwoven rugs with an absolutely buoyant 15-month-old (the effect of so many bright colours I am sure) and buying freshly made mssemen from elderly ladies early in the morning... actually towards the end of our stay reu and I came down with a bug that had us vomiting and feeling generally wretched - but thankfully we're mostly recovered now. alex was blessed with his iron constitution and was able to spend a day and night exploring the sahara desert about a 7-hour drive from where we were based - his scenes of the old towns along the way, sand dunes, oasis, camels and bedouin acquaintances are so mesmerising and beautiful... truly, one leaves this place inspired by differences, sun-drenched, dreaming...
