Marrakech, the capital of Morocco, is a city full of colour and diversity and surprises are waiting to be discovered behind every corner. Luxurious riads are hidden away behind inconspicuous doors in narrow alleyways an you find basic public hammams next to opulent spas. Locals are carrying their dough to the district oven to be baked into delicious khobzÂ past shops selling sweet moroccan delights. The smoke of charcoal fires is intermixed with the smell of fresh mint as well as the exotic aroma of amber and musk coming from the parfume shops. These pleasant odours almost completely neutralise the pungent stench of decaying fish offal and urine.
