Man in Courtyard

By the way, Edinburgh folk, some of my Morocco pics are on display in the Circus Cafe on St Mary’s Street (just off the Royal Mile). If you don’t know the cafe, it’s a cool new art cafe, does fantastic lunches, owned by the same people who have Empires, further down the street. Definitely worth hanging out there for an afternoon, should be opening in the evenings soon as well.

I had the mezze and it was dee-lish.

This photo was taken from a moving taxi as we headed back into the heart of old town Marrakesh. I like the slightly abstract, painterly quality to this picture very much.

This is what evenings in the Djemma El Fna are all about. At sundown, the stalls are all wheeled into the square, the cooks fire up the grills, the calamari, the prawns, the tagines, the skewers of marinated meat, the Merguez sausages are all laid out, the long tressle tables are covered in wipe clean plastic. It’s time to feast al fresco!

The lone man in red, in the midst of the maelstrom that is the Djemma El Fna. To his left is a woman painting henna patterns on a someone’s hands, to his right is a man selling teeth!

In old town Essaouira there is no motorised traffic. Large metal barrows are the main way to transport goods around the place, or this sort of long wooden trolley. This photo was taken from the same roof terrace as Three Women Walking.
