At a Marrakech souvenir outlet.

I bought quite a lot of things from this shop; leather cushions, bags, Moroccan clothes for the wife and kids and other stuff. This constituted my first ever souvenir shopping! I normally don’t bother with any souvenir shopping in the countries I visit for business or short trips, but Marrakech was the first exception to that rule.

The one thing I did want to get is one of those lamps, a fanous, which would have looked fantastic at the front door, unfortunately the size of the object and the inversely proportional size of my wallet didn’t allow me that luxury. Next time inshallah.

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday. And do please spare a though for those people who are paying for our freedom, with theirs.

    Hey Mahmood,

    I too don’t usually bother with buying souvenir while I’ve traveling. Makes for a much lighter trip back home.

    This pic looks really nice. Marrakesh’s brass work is really nice. A friend of mine in the US has an online store where he sells mostly light fixtures.

    Check this out.

    Tonight is sure gonna be a sleepless night.

    Good luck and God’s speed to the both of you. Inshallah everything will be fine and we’ll get a little Tanya/Hashim tomorrow! The first ever Bahraini blogger family child, you’re making history :cheerful:
