Monday Map: Rock the Casbah

This is a little map of Morocco from a few years ago. Another place to visit someday...

Here are some interesting photographs of Marrakech-- the colors and patterns and designs warm my winter-weary heart! (I just noticed "Marrakech" is spelled two different ways-- "ech" or "esh"-- I wonder why...)

I find myself looking forward to Map Monday now Jennifer. This one is another little gem.
It inspires me to try drawing one of my favorite painting spots.

Wonderful map!
Maybe we could collaborate on something one day........?
Thank you for your kind link.
A children's book where a child discovers the delights of a different world from England and America?

As regards the 's' and 'c' - it really doesn't seem to matter much since they are both sounded 's'.
I think it is more up to date to use the 'c'.
For example derb/rue Dabachi is pronouced derb "DERBASHY" - which it is rather as almost always incredibly busy!

Thanks, Frank-- you just made my day! :-)

And thanks for the explanation, Elizabeth... I knew you'd know the reason. Hey-- you should write that book!!
