VIEW OF AGADIR FROM MY ROOFTOP

image

Well, to be accurate its from the rooftop two doors down.  I had the idea, took the steps upstairs to my terrace, put them on the ledge,  climbed to the top step……and bottled climbing over the parapet onto the roof!  Then I remembered my neighbours roof terrace.

The Mosque (pronounced mos-key) you see in the foreground was being built when I first arrived here to live.  One day walking to the shops I was horrified to see them painting the Minaret with one painter dangling down out of the top window, while another man inside held onto his ankles. 

I have a useless sense of direction, but I think thats looking south, the sea is across town to the right-hand side of the picture.

A friend found an old map of Agadir from 1978.  I think its fair to say that the whole picture would have been empty.  My, Agadir, how you’ve grown.

I am contributing to #sixwordsaturday pop over and have a look

      and growing still Jo, there used to be a real gap between Agadir and Bensergeo, the next village, now its pretty much completely filled. Still, lots of work on construction!
