Marrakech, North Africa’s vibrant jewel, is a city like no other. Its roads filled with speeding cars, mopeds and horse-drawn carts, and the hidden riads providing a cool oasis from the hustle and bustle of the square… Even a jam-packed four-day trip isn’t enough time to explore everything this magical city has to offer.
I’ve only just returned from my recent stay there, so I still need to go through my photos from my DSLR and get my films developed. But in the meantime, here are some quick iPhone snaps of my first (and definitely not my last) Moroccan adventure.
