    Dear Jhon,

    I’ve noticed in you collection and in Joseph’s too that there are many veiled women, I wonder if you two have a facination for veiled women.

      Dear Kenza,
      Please forgive my English humour. I was just pointing out the ironies of such a traditional portrayal of the Maghreb in a drinking bar full of men. The Orientalism was not mine but the hotel’s.
      All best,
      John
