friday field trip (from the sketchbook).

june 2015
marrakech, morocco

while in morocco, we went to a HAMMAM. it was such an incredible experience and i have NEVER felt more clean. the woman who cleaned us slathered black soap on our entire bodies and then, with great vigor, scrubbed us with a charcoal mitt. so painful, so pleasurable. it removes all of the dead skin (yes, she showed us) and leaves you as soft as a baby’s butt. she also washed and comb out my hair (score ! . . . i hate washing my hair). naturally, i bought many tubs of this mysterious black soap to bring home with me. and i can’t wait to go back…

then later that day i went to one of my favorite stores, the GARDENER, and saw THIS BOOK!

more occo.

my mom and dad went to MOROCCO and all they brought back for me was a pair of pink moroccan slippers. i heard there were delicious camel burgers in marrakech and they promised to take ME next time . . . burgers are my most favorite food group.

i just went to morocco for the first time and was completely blown away. the COLORS. the BEAUTY. the FOOD. this photo was taken on a train from fez to marrakech. it was unbelievably beautiful.

this is at the tannery in fez. giant vats of natural dyes for leather. the smell is so incredibly FOUL that they give you fresh mint leaves to hold up to your nose.

colors in the souk. the spices and dried goods. AMAZING.

the architecture, the tiles, the woodwork. absolutely unbelievable.

and of course, the moroccan LAUNDRY !

i can NOT wait to go back to morocco. it was life changing.
