Tiles all brought from Morocco and put in by Moroccans

The brass tables in the Syrian Room are actually from Morocco

The carpet in this Diwaniya room is a larger replica of one stolen from a museum during the first Gulf War, the original was later returned.

Keep up with the postings; I check almost everyday to see what's new. I guess my wanderlust is filled vicariously through you.
