I love walking down a dirt road in the sun. Suddenly, I get a sense I should go right. I look around the corner and there I find hidden Moroccan treasure.
I love the artistery and love for crafs don’t you?

Vilostrada is in Chefchaouene.

The sun sets over the Blue City and it changes color. A city full of artisans and hidden beauty behind each corner!

Good Night!

The day comes to an end. We walk to visit our Nomad friends in Sahara. Aicha greets us with a smile. We are welcome into her tent. In the corner, we find a gem, a treasure passed on from mother to daughter.
The white is sheep wool mixed with the light brown from the camel. The black string produced from the goats outside.
I hope of of these rugs can be our summer picnic blanket. / Victoria
