    Another Morocco post..:smile:
    Came back from a two week trip to Morocco yesterday..was travelling around a bit. Here are some pics from HOT Marrakech....45 degrees celsius everyday..
    Also traveled to the Atlas mountains and fishing town Essaouria.
    So many colors, interesting places, nice people and photo opportunities.


    Marrakesh, the souks and Djemaa el Fna (The big square where you can find magicians, snake charmers and story-tellers and a lot more..:

    Essaouira a fishing town on the Atlantic coast, a paradise for hippies in the sixties, among others Jimi Hendrix visited here -
    "The town of Jimi Hendrix" I heard more then once from Moroccans trying to sell something to you..;) I really do recommend this beautiful pretty much unexploited place.

    These are great - you just don't get this kind of atmosphere in the US. Nice work!
