“Whole families were out for an evening stroll – children riding on their fathers’ shoulders, boys playing vigorous games of soccer, people stopping to greet one another and chat in the warm night air. This was what living in a city without cars meant.” pg. 10 A House in Fez by Suzanna Clarke

Interview with the author:

Video of some young westerners and the house they are living in:

Fez really is a most extraordinary city. I hope you and your readers get the chance to visit it sometime. Every time I return, it reminds me anew of all the things that are now missing from many lives in the West, like a sense of community and the beauty of handmade objects in everyday use.

This looks like an interesting read. Here is my teaser for this week.

Hi Suzanna! How exciting to have an author drop by my blog. I’m really enjoying the book. I haven’t been able to put it down all week. I hope to be able to visit Morrocco someday. I currently live in South Korea and am travelling around the far east. If you are interested, there are tons of pictures on my blog from travels around here.
