    Marrakech, Morocco Just like in Arabic Tales

    Marrakech is a beautiful Moroccan city so filled with old Arabic world charm - like what one would imagine when reading an Arabic tale as a child. The Medina, architecture, dusty pink colored walls, winding alleys, friendly locals, traditional medicine stores, souks, amazing chaos in the main square..... all make Marrakech a truly memorable and unique destination like nowhere else in the world.

    Kasbah district in Marrakech, a place which seemed to have resisted change that comes with time. However, the main reason why we went to this area was the Hammam. It was my birthday so I decided a visit to a spa would be nice.

    Morocco from My Fisheye's Point of View

    Two South African girls fed up with city life, packed up and decided to backpack through Morocco and travel the Sahara desert in June 2012. We did this with no preceded planning except for buying the airline tickets. This turned out to be the most magical and enlightening trip we've had, and not in the least bit as scary as everyone warned us it would be. I documented everything I laid my eyes on with an 100 ISO color negative film and my Fisheye 2 and experimented with a 50 ISO expired film that also went through the airport scanner. This trip made for some interesting pics. Enjoy!

    La Mamounia - Oasis of Beauty

    La Mamounia - the eye candy of Marrakech. After a day spent wandering around dusty Medina and souqs, it was still too early to return to our hotel so I suggested we check out the only Art Deco building in town - Hotel La Mamounia. I am a big fan of Art Deco style in architecture, so for me it was a must.
