We returned to our ship rather late in the evening, the harbour was smelly and foggy and we hurried aboard, looking forward to a whole day at sea on our way to Madeira
Low sun behind the minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque. Time to head towards our bus and leave Marrakesh.
Red walls, palm trees, blue skies, snowy mountains in the back and lots of ACs
Streetlife in the Souk of Marrakesh, blind shot from the hip
you can recognise recently exchanged parts quite easily
We saw tourists picking flowers in the gardens around the Saadian tombs but this rose had survived
There were some rather nice flowers in the gardens surrounding the tombs
Another peek into the building
We only had 5 hours to visit Marrakesh but at least managed to visit the Saadian tombs and the Bahia Palace
As a non muslim tourist you are not allowed to enter the Kasbah mosque (also called el-Manouria or Moulay Al Yazid mosque) but you can enjoy the building from outside. It was built in 1190 and although not as spectacular as the famous Koutoubia mosque it is nevertheless a prime example for the architecture of the "red" city.
we didn't believe the stories about the smog and the smell ... until we arrived. Ugh!
