let it snow

I live in a little seaside town, south of the Mediterranean. Most of this country is made up of desert. But if you head up in to the mountains at this time of year ... 


Yes, those mountains.


After a scenic drive ...




It's cold! 


Chrea (pronounced Shreea) is a town in the city of Blida, just west of Algiers and up, up, up in the mountains! 


It's gorgeous! Allahumma baarik! Imagine living in this, all tucked up in the snow.


We had snowball fights.


Then we got back in the car to have some soup and hot chocolate. 


Did I say it was cold?

Tikijda is another place to visit if you like snow, but this time, East of Algiers.

Oh wow! Beautiful! Reminds me of our trip up Pikes Peak this past summer in Colorado where we got stuck in a freak snow storm and were at the top for hours until it cleared and they could plow the mountain roads. Driving in that was the most scared I've ever been. Thanks for your email,
Tammy
