I just spent a week in Morocco and it was awesome. We arrived in Marrakech at lunchtime on Monday and spent the next few days wandering round its winding alleyways trying to find the way to and from our Riad. It was totally bewildering but we had fun bartering with locals and soaking up the atmosphere. We ate lots of meat, drank loads of delicious mint tea and bought all our Christmas presents in the lively souks around the famous central square, the Jemaa el Fna, which came to life every evening with food stalls, storytellers and drummers.
The colours in the city were amazing. The decoration of seemingly insignificant windows and doorways was beautiful and I left wanting to photograph the whole city all over again. I did quite a bit of drawing there too, which was lovely. I hadn't done any location drawing for ages so it was fun to sit in street cafes and wield a colour pencil again.
Later in the week we headed out to the country... but I'll tell you about that another day!
