My Other World

Before I started the New York blog, we lived in Morocco which is where I started blogging as a way to keep in touch with my family. (See The House in Marrakesh). Anyway it sort of blossomed.

But we go back to Morocco pretty often. First place we went to was Cafe France

where we watched the world go by on foot

on bikes and mopeds and even caleches.

 We walked through the souks, past the olive sellers

Saw our first charming pussy cat (pregnant of course!)

glanced into an antique shop

tried to avoid the carpet sellers

wondered if my granddaughter would like little princess shoes

and admired the patina of old shutters.

Then we walked through our old neighborhood

in search of old friends. More of that good stuff later.
Here derb djedid our old street.


  1. Beautiful photographs! Love the colours.

  2. How have lived in two of my most favourite places, Marrakesh and New York...the thing I love about the Fna is it never changes you can even spot a favourite cafe in the corner in The Man Who Knew Too Much!!

  3. So much history, one can feel the vibrancy and the colours are a visual delight. I can but only imagine the experience of living within this culture and living it first hand.
    And then to New York!! Lucky us that you started blogging Elizabeth.

  4. I feel like I have been there myself now. What a cosmopolitan life you have had! Stunning pictures - thank you.

  5. Elizabeth, I am turning a delicate shade of green looking at these photographs.

    It's a delight to see every image, and to know what fun you all are having. Morocco is such a contrast to our currently grey New York City!


  6. OH and OH and OH!!!! Favorite place! How lovely for you to be there in sunshine, with carpets and olives and everything wonderful! Buster probably thinks you are majic- one day here, next GONE! and then you reappear - he wags and jumps around for that trick!

  7. So lovely to see you and Robert today - I loved our walk. I'm just posting some photos now. Love yours!

  8. I think that I would rather like some of those princess shoes! Beautiful pictures of an amazing place.

  9. I can certainly see why you love the place and return often. Thanks for giving us a look at the exoticness (made that word up). I'd LOVE a visit there.

  10. I first 'met' you at the Marrakesh blog and was mesmerized from the first photo.
    Princess shoes, please!

  11. I've been missing your Morocco blog. Thanks for taking us back with you.

  12. I'm surprised, no questions about the Marrakesh Express?

  13. Awesome pics. looking forward to more,

  14. Really interesting to see not having been anywhere like that.

  15. I love seeing other cultures. Great pictures!

  16. Think I would rather like to bring back a carpet! Looks warmer there than here - what a good place to make a second home?


I look forward to hearing from you!
