In January 2000 My husband and I went to Morocco for a week. It was his Christmas present to me, all booked, and ready to go, 2 weeks after Christmas. I love presents like that!
These pictures are scanned from the old APS films we had then, so the quality is not too good. But even then, long before I had even heard of blogging, I enjoyed photographing signs.
The languages in Morocco are arabic, which I don't know at all, french, which I know enough of to kind of get by, and various tribal languages. Signs were mostly in arabic, and in some cases, also in french.

We rented a car and drove into the Atlas mountains. On our way to the mountain pass Tizi n Test, we passed by this "restaurant". This was literally in the middle of nowhere, but Coca Cola was there, at least we understood that part :-)
Reaching the summit at altitude 2100 meters, this sign announced the restaurant "The beautiful view". We saw beautiful views while driving up, but on top we drove into heavy fog, and didn't see a thing.
This was the "restaurant":

I loved Morocco and would love to go back!
