castles made of sand…

Post image for castles made of sand…


about a three hour drive through the desert to the west of marrakech will bring you to the seaside town of essaouira in morocco.  from the pictures you can feel the laid back vibe of a quaint fishing town, but essaouira also has an artistic culture that is very much alive- its medina houses several arts and crafts businesses, the beach is an ideal location for kite and windsurfing, and for the past 12 years the town has hosted the gnaoua festival of world music.  often referred to as the “moroccan woodstock,” the festival lasts four days and attracts close to a half million spectators.  one of the city’s most famous landmarks is the castle made of sand- said to be the inspiration for the jimi hendrix song, although he hadn’t yet visited essaouira when he wrote it. several images from our april catalog were shot in essaouira, and in looking through these photos i can certainly see why our team was drawn there.

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
