Marrakech is really amazing. I am in love with this city. Donkeys, mopeds, tourists and Marraches meander through the seemingly never ending maze of shops of the souks. Anything and everything for sale. Children playing soccer and running from house to house. Women covered from head to toe in their hijabs. Walk off the busy street and find yourself on an even smaller alley lined with large, unassuming wooden doors. Walk through a door into your riad you are totally overwhelmed at what lies within. Dark, cool hallways. Fountains and pools. Comfortable lounge furniture. An oasis.
Colorful. Hectic. Enchanting.
Marrakech is truly a feast for the senses.
