After too little time to really see much of The Hermitage Museum we walked back into The Palace Square. While we were inside the whole square had been transformed by the military into a massive parade ground. This was a full dress rehersal for the May Day celebrations to be held a few days after we left.
No I’m not completely mad, well, not yet! I’ve decided to try Self Portraiture – I’ll always have a model no matter where I am and I can make all the mistakes on myself and learn along the way. So boots and all, 365 Days of Self Portraiture. But never fear this is the only Blog post I will do of this project, it is for my fun only 🙂
This is the oldest part of Rabat, the Kasbah les Oudaias, with narrow alleys and whitewashed houses. We came upon this musician in one of the streets, amazingly he could twirl the tassel on his cap while singing without appearing to move his head. We tried it and it’s not as easy as he made it out to be.
The Mausoleum of Mohammed V in Rabat, is a traditional marble Moroccan style mausoleum built as the final resting place of the present king’s father and grandfather. Beautifull mosaics and carved plasterwork, it was the guards posted at the four doors that took my attention in their splendid uniforms as well as the mounted guard at the street entrance.
