My street in the Old Medina on a Rainy night the week before last – 4/1/2012
Irises have started to bloom signaling spring in the Rif Mountains.
The chickens of my adopted host family – The Sahmoudi’s enjoying “Free Range,” in the back yard.
The free water caves – still not completely mapped, beautiful although banister on the way down had me worried about safety regulations.
The rain comes quickly in the mountains – and that day so quickly the laundry was still on the line attempting to dry when a sudden downpour happened.
March also means the start of strawberry season! At first they are very expensive 6 dh for a small plastic container with maybe 10 – now they are 5DH a kilo = 2.5 pounds at souq.
The view from the Old Medina walls looking down on lower Taza.A day at souq.. the vendors arrive early from surrounding agricultural towns and sell their fruits and veggies until the customers no longer come or they no longer have produce to sell. Its the best place to shop because of the freshness and no fixed prices meaning you can bargain them down.
