It was late at night when we arrived to our Riad in the Old Medina of Marrakech, Morocco. I was in total awe by the interiors of the lounge area, such a great space to enjoy the contrast of new my mac laptop admits such raw and traditional surroundings. I must make note, at that point in time, it wasn’t as magical as it may appear. I was still trying to come to terms with what I had witnessed take place on the other side of the walls, where alley ways were full of old local men, speaking arabic alongside ferral cats scurrying about.
I do know that I remember waking up and seeing things in a different light. I walked up to the top of our Riad for breakfast and was amazed by how beautiful the city seemed, being up there was so surreal. Reflecting on the above picture I am happy to have witnessed such flawless and simple exteriors, the pretty pastel tones of the walls, their traditional trimming and a few nude coloured woven cushions.
After passing through the souks, we arrived at a cafe. I soon found the most amazing feature wall I’ve seen in my life! Naturally, I had to stop and grab a few photos, of course I received a few stares.. (I certainly did not care, the things we do for Instagram)
Aside from the architecture, the highlight of my trip was getting to see such a unique array of Moroccan market ware, from the lanterns to the bowls and trays. I can safely say that next time I’m in London I hope to definitely fly to Morocco for a big shop, stocking up on cushions, rugs, trays and more.
