Photo of the Week: Zagora, Morocco

04 Jul

Recently forged silver curios

In honor of today’s #FriFotos, here are some recently forged silver STARS that I saw in a large curio shop in Zagora, Morocco.

This was one of my favorite days of that trip because, after demonstrating how they forge the silver, the shop owners gave our group rein to explore.

I felt like Indiana Jones in the movies that I had watched as a kid–I bustled around the shop’s multiple levels, inside and outside, discovering myriad treasures: one-of-a-kind jewelry, peculiar trinkets, dusty lamps, aging manuscripts, even unlocked treasure chests!  It was wonderful, in the truest sense of the word.

Sometimes, the best part of travel is getting to approach the world with childlike wonder!
