In Morocco, the colours dazzle.

Marketplaces, in particular, fire up my photoreceptors faster than I can manage to take photos.

Yet in Essaouira, a windswept town facing the Atlantic Ocean, I think I can spot a bias.

In Essaouira…

    Gorgeous. I love the spice pyramids of Morocco. I recently discovered a great Ras el Hanout blend from World Spice in Seattle and have been enjoying it quite a bit.

    This country has been on my list a long time! It’s time. I must see. Great shots.

    Thank you all for stopping by! Yes, those spice pyramids always look so good – as do all the jars stuffed with olives and sliced oranges.

    I hope to go back – with a better camera this time ;)

    Thanks! Someone has since pointed out that my blog seems to follow the same bias…Perhaps that’s why I liked Essaouira so much ;)

    Thanks, very nice pictures. Essaouira is indeed a beautiful town (although a bit windy :) I just released a guest post on my Moroccan travels, including Essaouira:
    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Emiel. I’ve certainly heard a lot of people say that Essaouira is windy. I grew upon a hurricane-prone coast, though, so maybe that’s why I didn’t notice it so much!
