Having wanted to go to Marrakesh for a number of years we finally got there in March and it was cold and wet but a photographers dream and I would love to go back and spend more time in the Medina and the Souks. A place of high contrast and 12,000 shops in a very small area. Ones goes from busy streets with humans , donkeys, motorbikes and bicycles all sharing the same narrow pavement. you are then able to go through a door into the complete calm of the riad or cafe which just seems unreal.

The narrow streets hide many an exciting new area including the artisans, the communal bakeries and the dye shops. the smell of the spices, fish shops all assault your senses but well worth an explore but you will get lost.
