How many camels?

Got spoilt today! My friend Najib walked Rob and I through the Habouz souk in Casablanca where he introduced us to Moustafa the fabric seller. Najib wanted to show us the traditional wedding outfit from the south where he comes from but Moustafa wanted to go one step further so within a minute they had  draped me in amazing white and coloured fabrics, everone in the street began to help. I loved it so much I even bought the babouche (slippers) that fit the outfit.

6 camels, no 10!

Looking at the picture now it reminds me of the giant wedding dolls my Uncle Abdelhai has in his home. His Mum Zhor used to make these as presents, even gave one to King Hassan II. Quite an innovative design for the early 20's!
