MOROCCO ~Essaouira~

...Local views of  "Wind City of Africa"...It is the wind that ensures Essaouira retains its character....It blows too hard to attract many sun, sand and sea tourists...but seems to be a great place for windsurfers!
Thanks a lot David for this extra surprise!^^ (David's great blog: )

This time a "very" clear postmark!

Essaouira is a city in the western Moroccan economic region of Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, on the Atlantic coast.

Essaouira is an exceptional example of a late-18th-century fortified town, built according to the principles of contemporary European military architecture in a North African context. Since its foundation, it has been a major international trading seaport, linking Morocco and its Saharan hinterland with Europe and the rest of the world.
