One of the things that really captivated me on our trip to Morocco was the incredible detail on every surface of so many of the buildings, whether it be mosaic, carved stone or wood or metalwork. These photos really don't need any words so I'll just say, they all were taken from the exterior of one building, the Hassan II Grand Mosque in Casablanca.

They certainly are marvellous and reminiscent of Persian carpets which at times we have not been able to resist collecting, especially the old ones.

Dont get me wrong, I don't envy you YOUR trip, I just wish I could still fly i an airliner and go there myself.

Wonderful that you captured the multiplicity of the designs.
