    Vamos A La Playa

    Favorite thing: Modern-day Agadir is a European package resort located in Morocco. We named it Benidorm at Maroc! Nevertheless it boasts a great beach, high quality hotels and restaurants, and a fantastic climate, just a little bit too cold for the time being there. The reason people come to Agadir IS the beach, one of the best beaches in Morocco ...

    Fondest memory: Vamos a la playa, maybe for a good swim, however it was too cold for the Dutch fashion crew. Taking fashion photographs was great fun. We managed the cold ... thanks to the models, and Agadir beach!

    Red Ochre In Berber Lipstick

    Favorite thing: Studying about the myths of Java, Indonesia, and the make-up traditions, I love the colors of red & yellow ochre. This natural mineral is used in make-up, too, to paint faces and other part of the body. It became one of my specialities to create many shades, also for my oil-paintings.

    My Own Berber Buy

    Fondest memory: Red ochre is also linked with the Greek word for "blood" (to see as body decoration). The Maasai grow their hair into long, tight braids to powder it with red ochre ...

    So I got very stunned buying a Berber small bowl, which had been made out of red ochre from the mountains, mixed with herbs, oil and others. Only when moistened it release a beautifull red dye the Berber women put on their lips. Amazed I bought the "Berber lipstick" for just a few Dirham. No make-up artist at home had ever heard of it! So great buy ... and no magic by the fantastic Berber women. Thank you !!!

    Favorite thing: Besides its stretch forth beaches there is the Boulevard Hassan II in Agadir. Enjoy this stunning boulevard, for a shop and great fun. It is the lively heart of the modern Agadir.

    Fondest memory: This boulevard, coming alive every evening, we enjoyed all of us ... with its snake charmers and jugglers, lovely storytellers and sturdy fire eaters, teeth fixers and potion sellers, magicians and acrobats. Even dancers we've met during daytime come back to amuse the tourists. Happy times indeed ... thanks Agadir!

    Favorite thing: On the casbah hill there is a sign in arabic saying 'God, King and Country' on the hill. At night from the beach it is lit up and you can see it for miles around.
