Postmarked Marrakech, date 17 June 2008.
The first of three sent to me by my son and his French wife while they were on holiday recently. The Koutoubia Mosque is the largest in Marrakech, or Marrakesh. Its minaret has been used as the model for the Giralda mosque in Seville, Spain, which in turn has influenced the style of thousands of church towers and later buildings such as the Manhattan Municpal Building.
