lovely asilah

My third visit to Asilah ended in food poisoning and a bad cold— for all three of us. I've always prided myself on having a stomach of steel but Morocco has an uncanny ability to smash any notions of gastrointestinal strength that one might have. What was intended to be a long weekend of relaxation, grilled fish, sight-seeing and birding, turned into a hasty retreat back to Rabat with a poor baby wailing in the car, and two rattled parents.

And so, over the next couple of posts, I give you the few photos (and one sketch coming— can you believe it?) that I managed to take in this lovely seaside town of whitewashed alleys and colourful murals.

I can say that I am very impressed by the six-sided Solomon star in the window. Cihan domination. Hapreddin Pasha in the Ottoman navy also used this star in the crusade. You know Barbaros Hayreddin Pasha. We are getting favor from your sharings. Thank you.
