Arabian Nights

My fiance’s family is Moroccan by way of Spain. Originally from Toledo, Spain, the family was expelled in 1492 following the inquisition. After the expulsion, they migrated to Safed, Salonika, and Morocco. Eventually, they arrived in Fez, Morocco, during the 16th century from Salonika, and from there went to Meknes. In the mid-19th century, the family moved to Tangier, where they became leaders of the community.

Tangier lies on the Northern tip of Africa and is known internationally as a city of multicultural assimilation Рnotably of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish communities. In the 20th century, playwright Tennessee Williams, the beat writers William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, the painter Brion Gysin and the music group the Rolling Stones, have all visited, cited and stayed in this white city between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

    Hello Keren, I found your blog accidentaly and I love it! Especialy the part about Morocco. In 2 weeks I go there with my mum so now I know what to expect ūüôā Can you tell me how you create those collage product images?

    • Hi Madeleine! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you and your mum have an amazing time there. I actually still have never been, but my husband and his family tell me about it often. I make the collages in a program called “Pixelmator”, where I download various fonts, and find images I love from tons of stores. Good luck!
