Marrakech Morocco

Marrakech Morocco, Many commercial caravans passed by here before the Almoravid Berber leader Youssef ibnou Tachafine and his wife Zinab arrived. The new tribe ruler Almoravid originally from the Sahara Desert, built the walls in AD 1062 and extend the city making it the most important trading center in whole Africa, then his cousin settled Tumbouktou few years later.

Marrakech shows the African and the Berber side of Morocco instead Fez is more Andalusian & European, making the country to be that diverse on all ways. Marrakech Medina is a wonderful labyrinth with its narrow alleys, buildings and huge Souks ( Markets). Take a break at the Main square Djemaa Lefna and get to see the gardens in Gueliz the new and modern town. Just as the color blue is synonymous with Fés, green with Meknès and white with Rabat, red is the colour of Marrakesh. A local Berber legend has it that when the Koutoubia was planted in the city's heart, it poured so much blood that all the walls, houses and roads turned this color. Today the red of the earth walls surrounding the medina and its flat roofed houses is that of still raw scars and at dusk, in the last rays of the setting sun, you could almost believe the blood is flowing again as the city's ramparts turn crimson. 

The best time to visit is undoubtedly early spring. If you can, you should avoid Marrakesh during the sticky months July and August.

Camel drinking water from the bottle in Morocco

That's very clever. I didn't expect to see a Camel drinking the water from a bottle that's was amazing to see it in reality. I tried the same thing with other camels on the same place but it didn't work. The other camels throw the bottle or bite it. They don't  drink the water from the bottle as this Camel which named Michael Jackson.

The Morocco language; Berber is a proper writing language and not just dialect. Some people thing it is a bit similar to the old Greek or Hebrew. It is very different to Arabic however they sound like.
Berbers are very proud to speak their own language to each other. However everyone speaks the Morocco Dialect Darija which is the main one.


Darija Morocco language is a nice mix of Berber, Arabic and French. It would have many French words on it but pronounced differently to suit the local accent. For example : Automobile in French = Tomobila in Darija, ça suffit in French = Safi in Darija. it such a simple French version for Arabs and Berbers accents.
