Good morning....
The name Marrakesh originates from the Amazigh (Berber) words mur (n) akush which means "Land of God". It is the third largest city in Morocco after Casablanca and Rabat. It lies near the foothills of the snow capped Atlas mountains. It is a few hours from the foot of the Sahara Desert.
The City is divided into two distinct parts...The Medina, the historical city and the new European modern district called Gueliz or Villa Nouvelle.
We toured the modern part of the city yesterday and visited beautiful gardens and interesting buildings. I thought I would start off with street scenes today..
V1 is a pedestrian shopping mall
In V2..This guy was drinking water and must have noticed my camera...just caught him glaring at me, fortunately we were in a taxi...
V3 one of my favourites...some ladies in a crowded bus ...The other versions are all street scenes from the modern part of the city.
Have a nice day....GrinGrin

Great to get a varied picture of Marrakesh - just as I'd expect with the colour and crowds in V1.
I often forget to use flash when capturing faces but I daresay you wouldn't have time to think about it
in V2 taken from your taxi.
I love V3 with the figure on the platform making it!
The carpets and fabric patterns V 7, and V11 are wonderful to see also.
Lucky you.

Great and specific "maghrebian" atmosphere in your reportage ( always wanted to see Marrakech, but I could visit only northern Morocco). Very well revealed the "colors and the smells" of the area. From your set we can see very good the red-ochre tones. Don't forget to take some distance from the snakes charmers GrinGrinGrin
And try to go to Koutoubia mosque, the symbol of the town. Also it worth a visit through the Atlas mountains until the Dades canyons and the fantastic scenic village of Ait ben Haddou
Hope you are not melt from heat ( must be now > 40 degrees, February-March the best time to visit South Morocco). Have a nice trip in Morocco ( which name derives from the portuguese name pf Marrakech - Morrocos) ( and don't hesitate to ask me anything about this country if necessary, i know it very well)
