    Jorgen, my friend, thank you so very much. Hope all goes well with you.

    These images are from a small and beautiful town on the west coast of Morocco..Essaouira.

    You will love it.

    Re: Traveler's Tales..

    Ah, but Essaouira is well known by Norwegians. A legendary Norwegian author of children's books, Torbjørn Egner, visited Essaouira in 1949 and used the town as the backdrop for his book "Folk og Røvere i Kardemomme By" (When the Robbers Came to Cardamom Town).



    All Norwegian, and many foreign, children know this book, and most adults in Norway will be able to sing the songs from their memories, myself included. I have wanted to go there for a long time, but so far...

    ..this, Ryyan, (together with your old Orson Welles habour-shot) makes me just a bit more dreaming of a visit to Essaouira...this together with Cuba (and perhaps Lofoten) could be the only longings....

    Wow, I DO remember the three robbers! Never realized it was a Norwegian book. Jeg visste ikke at boka er norsk.

    This looks like a scene from the movie Inception. Great colors and nostalgic.
