I spent some time in Morocco, and in Ouarzazate and the Draa Valley, at the end of the 80s and so was very pleased to find these.

Heh, I found out from perusing the first link that Jack London's yacht was called the "Snark".

I am so enjoying paging through Paul Starrs' Images of the American West. Particularly this one. Thanks for the great link!

Wow, this image in particular [taken from Images of the American West] is just amazing.

I used to live near Sidi Ahiya during the 60's near Kinitra when my father was stationed on a military base nearby.
Such memories, the bazaars, the fish markets, the people and houses, and of course, cous-cous. . (alllurrrggghhhhh . . . cous-cous . . . )
