In December last year we were fortunate to visit Marrakech in Morroco where we spent four nights in a Riad within the Medina.

Marrakech had been high on the bucket list for a few years now and we're pleased we can now tick it off.

It was a fascinating place to visit and made you think about how somewhere so close to London (under 4 hours) could be so culturally difference.

From a photographic perspective it was very different in that many of the locals object quite strongly to having their photographs taken. The streets of the medina are also very narrow with people, bikes and mopeds going in both directions given you little time to get the perfect photograph.

That being said I did manage to get some photographs that I am quite happy with which can be viewed here.
