Djemaa el Fna Rotterdam.
At the Djemaa el Fna Rotterdam you can find three different markets; the Souk (to shop), the Food market (to taste delicious Moroccan food) and a crafts market (for workshops).
Today we went to the Museum park and it was an exciting 'sneak preview' for the Djemaa el Fna square in Marrakech next week. Oh, how I enjoyed the almond cookies, the sounds, the scents and colors.
You can still visit the Djemaa el Fna in Rotterdam tomorrow.

Two weeks from now, we will start with the 6th edition of the Cool Crochet Workshop in Marrakech. Around this time we officially start with a welcome dinner on the rooftop terrace of riad Chambres d'Amis.
At the moment I'm working on new projects to make during our travels in and around Marrakech.
Twelve women from around the world will join the October workshop. Among them, there are four 'crocheteers' that already joined the workshop before, which I consider as a compliment!
Last April we did a stool-cover project for a small moroccan stool (think suitcase size) and everyone was so excited when we showed all the tiny little stools.
So big chance, we will repeat this project!

The last day of our roadtrip in Portugal.
We made a trip from Porto to Coimbra, to Nazaré, to Lisbon. We enjoyed every minute and did great things! It has been a wonderful summer holiday, which already ended two weeks ago.
Because of the many roadtrip posts, I was able to hold on to that relaxed Portuguese holiday feeling.
(and the last breakfast cake from Baixa House we took back home)

Roadtrip Portugal 2016.
A photo report of the streets of Alfama, a visit to the Feira da Ladra. On the hottest day of the week we escaped the city and took the train to Estoril, where you literally step out on the beach. (apparently the nordic walking ladies didn't suffer from the heat)
