Marrakech: Photo diary

IMG_9792
As you may already know, I’ve been travelling again. This time I went to Marrakech, one of the busiest cities in Africa. In the Old City, I often had the feeling I went back in time. The people and atmosphere are truly unique. The central square, Jemaa El Fna, is one of the most known places in Africa. Story-tellers, snake charmers, musicans,… there are so many people doing their own ‘act’ and a lot more who are watching the ‘spectacles’. It’s almost impossible to describe the feeling I had there, but Marrakech is definitely worth visiting. I hope my photo diary can show you a little bit of what I experienced then! Enjoy!

NED: Zoals jullie weten ben ik enkele weken geleden op reis gegaan naar Marrakech. Soms had ik echt het gevoel dat ik terug ging in de tijd. Vooral rond de Jemaa El Fna, het centrale plein, is de sfeer uniek. Verhalenvertellers, slangenbezweerders, muzikanten,… er zijn heel veel mensen die hun eigen ‘act’ brengen en nog véél meer mensen die deze verschillende ‘spektakels’ aanschouwen. Het is moeilijk om het gevoel dat ik er had te omschrijven, je moet het zeker en vast zelf eens meegemaakt hebben. Soms waande ik mezelf zelfs even in een andere wereld. Via mijn fotoverslag hoop ik jullie toch even kennis te laten maken met de Marokkaanse cultuur. Enjoy!

One evening we had diner in (according to them) the first vegetarian restaurant in Marrakech. I can really say: amazing, delicious food! Btw, how cool is this big table for groups?
