Around the World in 80 Words! is a feature I write for Dartford Living, a magazine based in Kent, UK. I look at a different part of the world and write 80 words (derived from the novel title Around the World in Eighty Days) about it. In this post I write about Marrakech:
The ‘Red City’ at the foot of the Atlas Mountains greets visitors with the Koutoubia Minaret and Jemaa el-Fnaa Square where open-air restaurants, musicians and snake charmers vie for attention. The Medina walls hide mazes of alleys and lanes with bustling markets and street traders. Souks and Kasbahs intermingle with beautiful mosques that paint a busy skyline against a backdrop of the Atlas Mountains, where hiking, trekking and skiing are on offer. It’s definitely a feast for all the senses!
