photos of the weekend #14

A new chapter in my life here
CASABLANCA, MOROCCO 
since April 2010
The Atlantic Ocean and what a sky!

Moroccan flag

I enjoy sitting outside cafes...
shadows of a tree
a modern appartment house
you can see clothes drying everywhere

  4. I am still trying to figure out how a Finn from a cool climate finds warm Equatorial climate. Although the cold winters in Finland might make you think abut such warmth...the choppy Atlantic is blue, the result of the wonderful sky above. It is nice to have you back!

  7. Moro,
    Täällä ollaan. Onneksi oli vain hetkittäinen häiriö se.

    Nuo kuvat viehättävät minua kovin.

  9. What a wonderful mini-tour of this beautiful city, love to see that a lowly clothesline is accepted in any land.

  10. Every shot is a traveller's dream - breath-taking! Adore the perspective of the umbrella shadows! But I think that the winning photo for me must be finding beauty in rooftop washing put out to dry! Incredible wonder in the unexpected!

  11. Beautiful! I love the close-up of the shadows on the umbrella!

  25. What an interesting view you do provide tonight, reminding me much of Athens, Greece.
    Spending a few days home, in North Germany, enjoying cold and rainy weather.
    Wishing you all the best for the new week ahead.

  26. HI EVERYONE!
    I've been in our hotel lobby blogging around.
    Now I need a break but will be back in couple of hours - I need an espresso NOW :)! See you soon!!!

  27. Many of you noticed I didn't visit your blog this weekend.
    I'm sorry but my life is SO different here:
    1. Our weeks are from Mon to Sun again
    2. My husband is free at the weekends
    All this means that it takes some time to get new routine to blog when my husband is free...(In Cairo week started from Sunday so I had plenty of time to blog).
    Now I've got my husband back after 2 years for the weekends > I want to spend time with him.
    But I promise I'll be better soon!
    And if not please remind me! :) thank you!

    Yesterday we had a LONG walk, 15 km (9.3 miles)...yes, we got lost, no, we chose a wrong boulevard...today we look like tomatoes! :) but feel great!!!

    Kylla meri kuohuu ja lippu hulmuaa. Kaupungin aanetkin on totta, samoin aurinko - tosin tanaan on ollut vahan pilvista mutta eilen oli +28!
