Maryam's photo of a host at the Cabul Cafe. Yes, as in Kabul, Afghanastan.
I think you all know how I feel about Maryam from Marrakesh! She is an inspiration for so many people. Here recent trip to Afghanistan, documented on her blog, give us a glance at a world behind the violence that we hear about. Additionally, her notes and photos about Kashmir, Yemen and so many other exotic lands have broadened my perspective and reminded me, as Maryam so poignantly says, that we are the lucky ones. And that's to say nothing about her design talents and the stories and saga of the hotel she and her husband are opening, Peacock Pavillions. Such inspiration, this girl!
I am copying the following paragraph from Maryam's latest blog entry. Please go and vote for her. It would mean something to her personally to win this award, and for all she has given to so many, she deserves it.
And she's right! So does Apartment Therapy! So please vote for AT as well!
