In: from Morocco



I love birds and I love (living) fish. Eva made my day by sending this card, showing on the back a matching fish stamp, and in front an unusual view: of many birds (but it seems that the sea gulls prefer eatable fish).

The photo also shows part of the 500 years old walls of the city Essaouira. The name 'Essaouira' comes from the Tamazight word 'Tassort' which means (small) wall. The city's former name is 'Mogador'. Nowadays it is a UNESCO world heritage site.



Thank you very much, Eva!

  1. I put the sardine especially for the seagulls...
    DH and I spend some time in the postcards shop trying to find the best postcards with seagulls for your friend H, so I'm glad you like it!

    By the way, did you received the postcard with birds that I sent from France in August?

    1. I have received flying kites / kite surfers, but no birds so far...

    3. I guess those French birds were lost in way... It's a pity! :(

  2. Eva kindly sent me a card from here as well (but no seagulls) - I love getting UNESCO sites.
