“Johnny take a walk
With your sister the moon
Let her pale light in
To fill up your room
You’ve been living underground
Eating from a can
You’ve been running away
From what you don’t understand
Love…”– U2 ‘Mysterious Ways’

From their 1991 Album Achtung Baby, and the opening track of a lesser known T.V., (TNT was the network), adaption of one of my favorite comic books, Witchblade, I remember hearing this music and the eerie chill of its lyrics, both saying something & not say anything in particular. I looked up the track–track 8*–(I was 14 at the time) and discovered the album, the mesmerising video and  that it had been shot in… Morocco.

Morrocco is one of North Africa’s  most westerely countries. Known for such beautiful and populace dense cities like, Casablanca, Rabat-Sale’ and Fes. The art and cultural beauty is so unique and enchanting.From it’s Bazaar’s(outdoormarket’s), Tiles, unique architecture-Casbah’s,It being on the edge of the Mediterranean makes it a cultural Hub since the 14th century.Here is some examples of the atmosphere that is created by the culture:

I hope you are inspired by Moroccon Culture as the world’s designers, artists and craftsman have been for centuries.

“One day you’ll look back
And when you see
Where you were held 
How by this love
While you could stand there
You could move on this moment
Follow this feeling”
