Five Photos Five Stories Challenge – Day 1 – Berber Tent

IMG_1459

Morocco.

Camels walking alongside the dusty road, a small market stall piled high with bright oranges, green leaves still attached. A foyer lit at night with pierced metal lanterns, like walking into a room full of stars. Candles and fresh rose petals, silver and glass and polished wood. A small room, shadowy and curtained against the heat, lantern lit with comfortable sofas, just right for a mother and small daughter to hang out in for a while. The scent of honey and orange blossom. Drums echoing in the night, a masked man playing bass guitar against coloured lights, rhythms wild and pounding. And the view from a traditional Berber tent on the beach, redolent with smoke and fresh mint tea. Magical.

I’ve been nominated by Ali Isaac to take part in the Five Photos Five Stories Challenge – I haven’t chosen a nominee as yet ๐Ÿ™‚

The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:

1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. Itโ€™s entirely up to the individual.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!

  1. Wonderful pic and fab words full of imagery! Magical! I love Morrocco, I’ve been twice and their mint tea is wonderful, like nothing else on earth!

    1. Thanks Ali, I loved it there too. It was on my list of places to visit for many years and I so glad I got to make the trip – we all had a great time. I did love this tent, wish I had room for one in my back garden ๐Ÿ™‚
