My Entry To @monomad Challenge: "The Doors To Afrika"

The Doors To Afrika

This one I caught in Asilah, Morocco in January 2020

Asilah was the third place in Morocco which I've visited. It is a small touristic town in the North-West of Morocco, on the Atlantic coast. It was the 1st time in my life that I've seen the Atlantic ocean. I was there out of season & it was really a calm & comfortable place to be. On this photo you can see a store selling hand-made stuff - jugs & plates knitted from the outside. This technique of knitting the glass & ceramic jugs is very useful cause it makes the jugs firmer & protects them from breaking. In Croatia we still use the same technique but not with the threads or ropes in colors, only the natural color of ropes in maritime areas or in the color of the special shrubs in the continental areas - the same shrubs which are used to make baskets. But it's every day less & less people who know how to knit the "shirt" for jugs here in my beautiful Croatia.

Of course, I must post the original photo in colors, cause it's Afrika & Africa has loads of colors!

This shot even looks kind of better in colors but cause of the many patterns, it looks great in b&w too!

Recently I've published the newest #travelogue from this voyage of mine & you can read it on the following link:

Hi @careassaktart,
Great to see you using the #travelfeed tag! We launched the #travelfeed curated tag more than 3 years ago and have been supporting the best travel blogs on Hive ever since. But did you know that TravelFeed has evolved? Based on the feedback of thousands of Hive travel bloggers we created brings together all the benefits of Hive decentralized blogging with features that you as a travel blogger will love: Photo galleries, Instagram embeds, custom maps, automated adding to Pinmapple and more. We also offer many of the features you love on Peakd such as drafts and post scheduling. And if you want, you can even use our easy site builder to set up your own travel blog on your own domain which can be a great way to generate a passive income from your blog!

Unfortunately, focussing on developing the best platform for travelers means that we no longer curate the #travelfeed tag. But, you can log in with your Hive account on to publish your next travel post, and it will be posted to Hive automatically! Every day, we select the best posts and reward them with an upvote and added visibility.

We would love to see you on soon :)

We launched TravelFeed blogs in December, you can learn more here:
