Sometimes, all you need is to find your roots. Climb a tree and pause. This amazing Tamaris sits as the Queen guarding her land in the midst of the desert.

Two worlds and generations meet in laughter and a conversation on the street in Tangier medina back on 2014. They found their own language and lots of laughter. The old woman spoke Arabic and Maj Swedish. Proud of both these ladies and simply smiling because our world is wonderful.
