Photo: Spice Market in Marrakech, Morocco

I showed a photo yesterday of our task of reloading our spices in our Scottsdale home.  As a photo, it was not up to the customary standards for this website, but I showed it so that I would have a transition and excuse to show today's contrasting photo of a a very different and more exotic approach to the sale of spices.

Unlike the jars of spices in Safeway that are the source of the spices that I keep in Tupperware in my kitchen, in North Africa and the Middle East people buy spices in bulk from markets such as this market in Marrakech, Morocco.

I would worry that a gust of wind would blow the spices off the tall cones, or someone would be careless or malicious and bump into them.

I will show a closer view tomorrow or another spice market.

This week we have photos of Gibraltar posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

This is an amazing display. The smells must have been wonderful.

This is a very different way to display spice. I wonder how much people typically buy at any one time.
