My favourite day of the month!

I love payday.  Like really love payday. Live for payday.

So you could imagine my shock and horror when I was informed that payday in Morocco takes places once a month.

Now that you’ve caught your breath, I’ll continue.

Given an unfortunate event that caused many tourists to cancel their trips to Marrakech, I felt it my duty to support the local economy.

And here’s just a sample of the goodies I found in the souks of the old medina in Marrakech.

How pretty are the white slippers for my friend? I had to put them on my blog to hold myself accountable. Otherwise, I’d be wearing them around myself. And the cute little pink ones for her darling little girl who loves to play dress up.

Oldest sister also get some Moroccan body care products like yummy black soap and the most amazing bath products.  But they aren’t that photogenic.  So no photo provided.

And a treat for my feet!

    Hmm.. shopping? I thought you were trying to escape the North American lifestyle of SHOPPING!!

    Is it really necessary?

    Sorry, but I don’t get SHOPPING for more material things.. although I commend you for your concern for the

    country’s economy so you are forgiven!!

      Kathy! Thank you for your reminder. The majority of the stuff I bought is presents. Because I’m choosing to spend on experiences rather than crap that will just end up in the garbage. But the quality artisan products here are so hard to resist!

      Thank you. I wear them everywhere! Like for walks in the mountains and to the ocean when it’s pouring rain. Selecting appropriate footwear is not my forte! xo
