The Signing

These simple numbers may seem insignificant, but they have a meaning to those in the know.  They are painted onto a red wall in a derb in Marrakech, Morocco, by the surveyor who did the survey for a property title. 

There is a distance of about 10m between the 1 and 2 which denote the extent of a house title which is about to be sold.  

As of today, the owners (3 sisters) signed the papers and have sold us.  Now the fun begins!


  1. have been trying to congratulate you, but must try again. the very best luck with the new house, or old, but new. to you. hope for an exiting/ wonderful time in renovation, and then happy days.
