Con las maletas todavía hechas, quería compartir la primera de las fotos de mi viaje a Marruecos.

La Plaza de Djemaa el Fna' en Marrakech es una inmensa explanada a la que dan vida cuentacuentos, flautistas, aguadores, sanadores, encantadores de serpientes, adivinos ... y que por la noche se llena con los olores de la carne a la brasa y las especias. Un lugar que enamora desde que pones los pies en él.

Place Djemaa el Fna is wild, loud, and in your face. It is full of kitsch and hustlers. It has been this way for more then 500 years and hasn't changed much.

Kalapa, the port city was then attacked by Demak Kingdom, a kingdom in Kalapa neighborhood, under the leadership of Fatahillah. Kalapa Port was successfully conquered on 22nd June 1527 and since then the name was changed from Sunda Kalapa to Jayakarta, which means city of glory or victory. The date of 22nd June 1527 was then celebrated as the birthday of Jakarta City.


The Dutch came and taken away Jayakarta in the end of 16th century under the leadership of Jan Pieterszoon Coen. The Dutch changed the name of Jayakarta became Batavia and constructed buildings with the architecture style as they had in their country. In the Japanese colonization time from 1942 to 1945, the name of Batavia was changed to Jakarta (Jayakarta).

You can see the top of the Golden Gate bridge through the fog. It's nice. Better to look at larger.

Another view from the same spot as one of my previous shots, this time taken later at night.

Kota Tua, Jakarta, was the pioneer of the current Jakarta City. It was started from a small port at the mouth of Ciliwung River in about centuries ago. The port city was then developed became a busy international trading center.


Journals from European journalists in the 16th century said that there’s a city, named Kalapa (Kelapa in Sundanese called kalapa, means coconut), seemed as the main port for a Hindu Kingdom named Sunda, with a capital of Pajajaran, located near to the current location of Bogor. Portuguese was the first fleet from Europe that came to the Kalapa Port.

10 points if you get the reference. Admittedly, I put two clues in the tags...


I was going through pictures from the Columbus Day parade. This is always a weird holiday for me. We watched the parade from Fisherman's Wharf, which makes perfect sense to me as there is an Italian presence in the neighborhood. I.e. all the touristy restaurants serve San Francisco Italian-American food. Cioè the famed cioppino.


I've heard people say that the name comes from the Genoese word "to chop," but there is a fish soup in the Riviera called ciuppìn and - according to my Italian aunt - that is the Ligurian for zuppina, which would mean little soup.


Granted, that aunt is Tuscan and I didn't actually ask the Ligurian relatives, so who really knows?


As far as I know, many of the Italian-Americans in San Francisco are of Ligurian descent. My San Francisco Italian-American relatives are. My great-aunt told me that all of the bakeries in North Beach were Lucchese, but she may have said that because I'm a quarter Lucchese. My family's favorite bakery for grissini was recently bought by a family who just emigrated from Lucca. Granted, they've changed some of the recipes for the worse, but it's nice to have people to speak Italian with!


Anyway - after all the digression - a few shots from the day.


Explore #208! Thanks much!

Couldn't see him in the dark...

I'm trying to teach myself to post-process without going wholly over the top. It's slow going, as I'm sure you can imagine. ;)


Mijita in all its awesomeness!
