Such a shame that you couldn't find anything decent to eat, but, alas, that's Paris..... It is too bad you didn't have better weather, although the cool was probably better for shopping than the heat of a few weeks ago One never has enough time in Paris, tho, does one?
I've been catching up.... The mosque in Casablanca looks fantastic. I'm going to think about that. Interesting that they change the clocks during Ramadan. I had been thinking that it would be easier in the winter. It's over now, isn't? Yesterday or today? All your food pics look so good. I can't wait. And nice to see some old friends,eh?

What wonderful feasts.... It's hard to imagine the fasting and feasting for an entire month. What an experience.

I loved Prague.... you're photos brought it all back! Well, except these luscious desserts... Beautiful city and it looks like you had a wonderful time. Do you still have the frosting? LOL

That's a lovely steak - and much thicker than I can get at the supermarket. I have found a good butcher, though... cuts to my specs

Spain and Andorra were the same. We bought a juicer and big bags of juice oranges all winter long.

I left a long comment here a few days ago..... Forgot what I said LOL Other than I don't think I've actually ever had too much chocolate. Oh, yes, the book - Frances McDormand did a great job in the mini-series, but I haven't read the book
Okay, I'll go along with that..... Although I don't think I've ever had too much... Close, maybe. I saw the mini-series of Olive Kittridge. Frances McDormand was wonderful in it. I don't think I could handle your summer. A day or 2 of that heat, I can deal with but not every day. Here, on the other hand, we have the return of winter.....
My Sedi had a stroke. The first few days she barely moved, but then started coming around. She never did get up easily again, and couldn't jump into the car, but she lived another 15 months. But, she was only around 13 when it happened. Fingers crossed for Lucy.

What a gorgeous place. We have a 'candle tree' like the one on the wall.... We use it on the balcony when we eat there in summer. How fun to see one on your blog
Yay!!!! So glad that it's all going well for you.

I don't think I could do that...... LOL
And it's dry heat (I'm guessing) so it can somewhat deceptive. When we played golf in Spain in the summer I drank 2 litres of water during the 4 - 5 hours we were on the course.... followed by a 2 mugs of 'clara' - beer and soda mix. You are definitely not drinking enough water LOL

I love Madrid. I love Spain.... All those beautiful hams. Sigh..... I hope you're having a wonderful time. I remember having dinner reservations at midnight and being the first ones in the restaurant LOL

What a fantastic place! Makes me want to go to Casablanca just to see it. I love seeing the photos of the souks... Can't wait. And the dinner for the Americans looked wonderful. We have a very old 'Persian' rug that was the hubs parents. Those things last forever.... But I don't think I'll be hauling one back with me on the plane LOL

Get back to your garden??? In the US they're called '8-ball' - after te pool - billiard game. I grew them here but. as they are rather small, it's a bit of a waste of garden space LOL

Such gorgeous blue skies! When we lived in Andorra we could ski and play golf in the same day.
