I have to say that I'm not a fan of horse-drawn carriages. There are some in Lunenburg, and I feel so sorry for the horses, especially on the hot days. I can't imagine how a horse feels pulling a carriage in 45 degree weather :-( Although I suppose in Marrakesh, everything that everybody does is always done in hot weather!

It looks particularly imposing in your first picture! It's hard to imagine people building something like this without all the modern tools and machinery.

Great pictures Kate :-) The tiles work around the fountain is really impressive. Love the colours :-)

That is one very well-travelled tin of frosting! Hope you're enjoying Prague :-)

Wow, that's cool! I love cobalt blue :-) I wish we had markets here in North America like the ones they have in Europe. Did you go to the one in Budapesy when you were there?

Holy crap! All that for $72.00 a night!? You got the deal of the century! Crappy plain old hotel rooms here for for over $100/night!

Oh, I could just gobble up all those yummy berries right now!

Ah, so it's the actual sap straight from the tree without any processing.

We have lots of maple products here, but I've never heard of or seen maple water. I wonder if it comes from the syrup making process. I'll have to Google it :-)

I use coconut sugar :-) But it's not packaged this nicely! I buy it from the bulk food store. It's a healthier option than white or brown sugar, and doesn't have the aftertaste of fake sugars, which I can't stand. It's not quite as sweet as white or brown sugar, and I don't use it to replace white or brown sugar 100% of the time. But I do use it quite a bit.

I'm fascinated by cool looking doors too. When we were in Luxembourg and Belgium, hubby gave me a hard time about taking pictures of so many doors. So it turns out I'm not the only one intrigued by doors :-)

I love these balls - they really satisfy the craving for something sweet and/or chocolately in a healthy way :-)

Lovely rugs :-) I assume they come in other colours too, or is red most common?

I'm with you, I'd definitely go with the chicken version, not tripe! Do you know why this dish is labour-intensive to make?

I never drink tonic water, but when I had a bad leg cramp a few weeks ago, some people told me to drink tonic water. Apparently the quinine helps relieve cramps. No idea if it did the trick, but the cramp went away eventually - took a few hours though!

I wonder if you could make them in a pan instead of in the oven - might be easier to keep an eye on them and make sure they don't burn. I love this recipe for sweet & spicy nuts - you can adjust the spices according to how hot you want them - I use chipotle powder & paprika :-) And I like pecans, cashews, and almonds with pumpkin seeds mixed in :-)

Yay for takeaway and free delivery! Your post reminds me that I need to make another batch of hummus :-)

We went on a haunted tour one night when we were in Charleston, South Carolina. The stories are intriguing, but as for whether or not there are really ghosts wandering about... well, we didn't see any :-)

You do find the yummiest looking shops! Not a fan of coffee, but I could definitely eat some tarts :-)

Oh, I miss seeing flowers outside! All we've seen outside here for the last four months is snow. UGH! I'm so tired of winter, bring on the spring blooms please!

Mmmmm! Can't go wrong with strawberries, cream, and chocolate!

Are they mainly stray cats, or do people let their cats wander around outside? So cute that someone left this little guy a biscuit :-)

I don't think I've ever heard of wattle, and I've definitely never seen it. Do you know why it was chosen as Australia's floral emblem? I would expect it to be something more colourful and showy :-)

Reading through your recent blog posts is making me hungry! I wish I'd find something like this on my pillow at home every night! ;-)
