My Fear of Driving

I don’t think twice about traveling to foreign lands on my own but tremble at the thought of driving. I have driven, of course, but on limited routes. A few years ago, my husband and I sold my car because it was too expensive to keep and maintain for the few times I use it. And we both let out sighs of relief! I walk, take taxis, or use public transport to run errands and go places. I am very much aware, though, that my extreme discomfort in driving has hampered my ability to participate in out-of-state art workshops and exhibitions. But there are already too many unsafe drivers out there. I am one less to worry about.

Back from Morocco!

Ride to the dunes of Erg Chebbi


Me and my turban inside the dining tent at the desert camp


Just got back from a 12-day tour of Morocco, including Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Fes, Merzouga (including a camel trek to the desert camp in the dunes of Erg Chebbi), Todra Gorge, Dades Gorge, Ouarzazate, Marrakech, and Essaouira. A fantastic trip with Real Morocco Tours! The colors, the food, the beautiful riads (Moroccan houses with inner courtyards converted into B&Bs), the amazing landscape, not to mention encountering a sandstorm upon returning from the desert camp to the hotel! I took lots of photos which I hope will inspire a few paintings.
