Pictures from my trip part 4: places I've been

August 8th, 2008 at 05:40 am

Hey everybody! Glad to know that many of you enjoyed the pictures I took ^.^.

Next place: Marrakesh

My friend's sister and I took the train at 4 am in the morning:

View from the inside of the train:




At the cafe:



Marrakesh style breakfast anyone?
Freshly press orange, hot chocolate and yogourt



Everyday life in Marrakesh (A lot of people ride motors or bicycle there because they can't afford a car):


Telephone:


I forgot the name but it looks like a mosque:



Villa:


Where poor people live:


People sitting on the floor at this particular place and wait for someone to hire them for little jobs to do:


Little stores:


Typical Moroccan door:


Fruits seller and little taxi(brownish one):


Police motocycle:


Mohammed VI's garden:


Garbage can:


My camel (You can ride them for around 50 diirhams-70diirhams for a nice ride) around 7 to 10 dollars:


The souk at Marrakesh:









Water givers (they used to be important because they are the one carrying the waters in the old time, to get a drink, we have to pay them a diirham or two if I remember correctly) By the way, don't forget to pay them after taking a picture with them. The minimum 5 diirhams, don't let them force you into giving more and... Never show them a bigger amount than the amount that you plan to give, they will nag you like hell!! =O:


Morocco is famous for their orange juice but becareful where you buy yours, some are unclean. Go to Marrakesh where the seller press the orange in front of you and see if their glasses are clean. A good glass of orange juice cost 3 diirham (~40 cents):


Marrakesh present gare (they built a new one but the new one, it's a surprise once you get there you will see it Wink :


Next batch of pictures will be the Moroccan food at my friend's place =D.

By then, I think I will have enought time tomorrow to talk about the basic things that tousists and travellers should know. Big Grin
