Moroccan Mosaic

"Moroccan Mosaic" tells about the mere little stories, happening at the same time , in coexistance to each other. All together giving the "greater picture" of Moroccan street culture . With a sensation of colours and simoultenous happenings , it appeals like mosaics - stones from several sources, with rough outlines that rather draw an edgy than a straight line but at the end reveal a piece of cultural art to the viewer.

On two journeys through Morocco I travelled through the vivid and colourful cities of Tangier, Fes, Chefchaouen, Moulay Idris, Marrakech and Essaouira.

Moroccan cities are lively surprising and sometimes like a riddle. Beneath the pastel walls you can easily get taken away by oriental scents, mysterious paths or just one of the several tour guides who can sometimes be tiring to bargain with. Apart from that Morocco still is like a fascinating timetravel. You'll see lots of Berber and old Moroccans wandering the streets with classic Jellabas, sometimes looking for their donkey or moped to handle their work, sometimes on the way to one of the scenic mosques. The streets markets, called Souks , are something unique. You may find anything from camel heads, carpets to magic and probably hash (which is more of an open secret). Morocco has a long history of storytelling, so be aware to meet some talkative tourguides, people who pretend to talk to snakes or who tell you stories you won't believe and may be shouldn't. These photos intend to show Moroccan streetlife without make-up. Inch Allah.

nature that affects the cities too can be seen, while passing little Market villages by Bus. Sometimes you open your door in the morning in Tangier and a goat will say hello to you. Morrocans carry stuff,a lot of stuff always..either in the big pockets of Jellabah dress or on their donkey or somehow imrovised. For that I admire them, they have so much balance and technique to handle all the Overload of their own cities. And sometimes like they too,I was just happy to sit inside the cold terrasse of my Riad anf drink some tea with my kind hosts. Cause was lucky to always have kind hosts whether in Fes Hostel, KiF-KiF Hostel in Marrakech or at the Bea ch side surf hostels in Essaouira.

To have a calm base is extremely important in Morocco - cause only then you can enjoy the colourful, mysterious oriental smellinng morrocan labyrinths. Inch Allah!;)
