Our guide, dressed in traditional blue Tuareg robes. I believe, that the robes have been dyed with indigo.

The Tuareg people are a branch of the Berber people of Northern Africa.
They live nomadic pastoralist lifestyles but it is changing as urbanisation and tourism reach even the farthest and most remote places...

The picturesque Kasbah town ( ksar ) - Ait Ben Haddou (Morocco), a great example of southern Moroccan architecture.

The houses are small (though some are large and castle-like) and are built close to each other and the streets are pretty narrow. The town is protected by walls and its four towers.

This iconic monument has been a site of many movies including Gladiator, The Jewel of the Nile, and the Prince of Persia.

Dades Gorge, Morocco

A breathtaking view of Dades Gorge from the road. I just wonder what would have become of us if we skidded over the edge.

Melancholy

I found this musician's tunes and expressions very melancholic. Somehow seeing him play slow music alone in the hot sun, made me very sad.

A traditional vegetable dinner cooked in an earthen pot called "Tajine". It consists of potatoes, carrots, egg, olives, onions and many herbs. The picture was taken moments before I dug in :)

 A picture of Djemaa el Fna , almost deserted in the hot afternoon, but millions will throng to this square in the evening. One of the most lively (and crowded) places that I have been to. A fascinating place.
It is filled with street performers, musicians, acrobats, snake charmers, monkey traders, story tellers, tattoo artists, restaurant stalls, fruit vendors, sea food sellers, tea carriages, horse carriages, tourists, and many more. 

The spectacle of Jemaa el Fna is repeated daily and each day it is different. Everything changes — voices, sounds, gestures, the public which sees, listens, smells, tastes, touches. The oral tradition is framed by one much vaster — that we can call intangible. The Square, as a physical space, shelters a rich oral and intangible tradition. 

- Juan Goytisolo
