People are always praying in Marrakesh. The Muslims pray five times a day starting at five in the morning. We were staying literally one door away from a temple. So when the prays started each morning I was basically right in the middle of the action. It was quite soothing actually. I always looked forward to it. Yun and I used to our advantage. when I would draw in the afternoon, Yun would say, meet me at such and such a place when the afternoon prayers begin. When those loudspeakers would start to crackle I knew it was time to go meet her. This door I drew was right next to a temple also. The head guy stool vigil out in the street intensely watching me draw. A store keeper brought me some mint tea while I was painting. He told me not to take any photos of the praying because they don't take to kind to it. No problemo. He said they dig my drawing though. I always obey the law of the streets.

Lovely drawing as usual.
And your experience reminds me of what my Dad was telling me of his drawing in the streets there too.
Wishing you a great birthday.
