|Breakfast on the roof overlooking Fes....|
A great way to start off the day before heading out to the medina (or souk) and exploring.
Mint tea is the drink of choice in Morocco but I managed to avoid it.
The riad we stayed in served really good coffee (maybe because the owner is from Italy).
Mint tea...or coffee....but good luck finding anything alcoholic to drink ion Morocco.
Today I'm playing along with
Bleubeard and Elizabeth
with a T is For.....post. It is kind to have a little theme -- well, besides mail art of course -- and the theme for the Tuesday posts are to include a DRINK.
Being that my blog has Cappuccino in the title, that is no problem for me.
|I set out every day in Fes keeping my eye out for things that interest me...and you know....being a mail artist and all....I like mail slots..|
|And, I love post boxes. This one is sitting in a rather exotic (to me) locale but I am wondering what that message is on the post box?|
|Here's a cleaner version of a PO box....no graffiti on this one...|
In two languages....French is the wide spread second language in Fes...not English. My pathetic French came in handy since both my Spanish and Arabic is limited to saying thank you.
|I rather like it when I can't read anything....|
|I picked up quite a few earrings in the souk -- going to remove the ear wires and try to use them as charms in my travel journal. I love the Fatima's Hands ....|
|I got Henna stencils of the hands too...I just know I am going to think of something interesting to do with those...|
|Here's another lovely spot to catch up on working on my journal. I took the photo before messing it up with all my art supplies and paper ephemera...|
Now, here is a BIG QUESTION for all of you out there -- Seth Apter -- a wonderful artist whom many of you already know -- posted a question on his blog's FaceBook page and asked "What is your preferred platform (to follow) -- Blog? Facebook? Instagram? Pinterest?"
The results showed Facebook and Pinterest and Instagram all more popular than blogs....
But, I think, since Seth asked the question on FaceBook the results were skewed toward FB .... so, now I am asking YOU GUYS the question (and so is another wonderful artist and blogger)
Inquiring minds want to know -- do you want to see this blog continue? Or is everyone on to FB, Pinterest and Instagram.
Blogging takes a lot of time and effort and what most bloggers want from that is just to know that there are like-minded folks out there actually reading the blog.
The best way to let me know, is to leave a comment.
But maybe you are on to other things. Personally, I don't care for Instagram much...and really don't look at Pinterest much either...I do like FB but for me, it doesn't replace reading wonderful blogs like Elizabeth's, Seth's and Caterina's....
So, something to ponder. Please do let me know what you think. And I hope you enjoy this post with some mint tea or coffee or adult beverage of your choice...
See you all soon....well, maybe...
Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate.
