Marrakech was my 1st and last stop on my journey last winter - when I came there it was such an attack on my senses, it felt like too much! When I came back, it felt cosy and homely :) I got used to the culture and decided to enjoy its unique aspects.
It is also known as the "Ochre City", with a population of over a million inhabitants - its the most important former imperial city in Morocco's history. Medina is a city section found in many North African cities which is typically walled, contains many narrow and maze-like streets, and traditional Berber market (souk). The first photo shows the renowned Jemaa el-Fnaa square, one of the busiest in whole of Africa and even the world.
