I'm stretching a little bit this week's theme but I wanted to share this photo of yours truly wearing a Berber head wrap.
My husband and I were in a souk (market) in Fez, accompanied by our local guide and browsing the different stalls. We stopped at a shop that specialized in textiles. The shop was full of fabulous and colorful goodies to suit every taste and pocketbook. I was tempted to take with me an exquisite bedspread but decided against it since I knew I couldn't fit it in my suitcase. I then looked at more portable items, like scarves and tablecloths, and chose a couple of silk scarves. Before leaving, one of the guys attending the shop wanted to show us how the Berbers tie the turbans they wear as a form of protection against the harsh desert elements.
