Exit Marrakesh

摩洛哥马拉喀什

Although they say Fès was the kingdom of Morocco and is now the kingdom of leather industry. Marrakesh, however, is nowadays the bustling kingdom. I was constantly reminded of the name of one German film when I tried to fight my way through local markets and streets: Exit Marrakesh. And I did.

But before that, I can hardly argue that Marrakesh isn’t one ‘must-stop’ when you visit the country. After all, it has the biggest djemaa el fna and countless royal gardens, or sometimes, when you are lucky, around the corner under the midday sun, lies some authentic stillness.

Laughing Eyes in Morocco

摩洛哥 车窗外少女

The first time I was in Morocco was exact two years ago. Now when I look through the pictures I took in that land, the most satisfying ones are those with loving smiles and laughing eyes.

This picture was taken inside of a taxi, on my way to visit Marjorlle Gardens, Marrakesh. After few attempts of breaking through helpless traffic jam and winning competition with two young women running on scooter, he gave up and we stuck on the road.

Then came the young women and we rolled down the window and started to talk.
