Our Travels

Morocco with George

        

                                                          

George finally got to achieve a long standing ambition and was invited to visit Morocco recently.

Arriving in Marrakesh , the group stayed at a typical riad in the Medina and enjoyed the fantastic spectacle ot Djem el Fnaa square (above ) with its snake charmers and colourful food stalls.

He then travelled through the Atlas Mountains, having breakfast with a Berber family en route to Essouira on the Atlantic coast, and stopping off to admire the tree-climbing goats.

This port (above) , famous for its sardine fleet (readily available at the charcoal grill stalls in the harbour), was once occupied by the Portuguese whose influence is still felt in the defensive ramparts around the medina and the blue and white painted buildings reminiscent of the Algarve. He stayed in a typical central riad, where the locals were very friendly and also took in a vineyard where the group were given a tour and very Mediterranean lunch.

George at all times felt welcome and safe. Morocco has become a "must go to" destination despite trouble much further east which can naturally cloud one's judgement but really do not apply to Morocco.
