And now it's time for my final blog on Morocco. I always love to check out the market scene everywhere we travel--you see a real slice of life that way, and that was certainly the case in Marrakech, and the souk we visited there.
My only disappointment was that there was not much shopping time in our schedule, so I had to fly through the market, picking up just a few things, all along wishing I could shop for more.
So if you were shopping, would you pick up some pottery made locally:
perhaps a couscous bowl
or a tagine?
Berber carpets were everywhere, some you had to dig through
and others in stacks daring you to pull one out for closer examination.
Your taste buds are definitely teased with spices,
nuts and fruits,
and colorful sweet and savory snacks.
Leather shoes could be found everywhere
and the basket bags were intricately decorated.
Fancy a hat
or a scarf anyone?
The fabrics were a rainbow of color
and so tempting to the eye, even if you had no idea how you would use them.
Maybe you'd fancy a caftan
And many went home with one of the ubiquitous silver tea pots
and tea glasses of every hue.
What would you place in your shopping bag?
So long Morocco--hope we meet again someday.
