Marrakech, Morocco

The riad we are staying in is built around a tiled courtyard, with a rooftop garden which looks over the mosque and palm trees on one side and the Atlas Mountains on the other.

The alley at the door leads to the main square, in which snake charmers, fortune tellers, henna artists and drummers ply their trades.

The souk behind the square sells such things as tagines,

lamb cooked in tagines served with mint tea,

shoes and Berber pashminas.

All of the buildings in Marrakesh are painted in shades of the colour behind this giant wall painting, which is the colour of the earth here.
