The Gates of Ishtar - city in Ancient Iraq. Preserved in a Museum in Berlin. Sad that these things are no longer in the place in which they were created but seeing as much cultural cleansing took place in the invasion of Iraq in 2003, perhaps it is better that the beautiful walls rest in Germany.
One of many dedications in the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. Dedicated to the homosexuals who were killed.
Some see it as a chance for the country to throw a party while others see it as a waste of resources.
Also in Djemma al Fena, a square in the old part of Marrakesh, is a food market. This pops up around the afternoon if I remember properly for sit down lunch/dinner/snack. About 30 dirham for a vegetarian plate ($4 Canadian).
Moroccans are famous for their hospitality. They love to share. You can definitely still experience this in Marrakesh it’s just a little harder to find peace with locals in a city full of tourists. You have to go with a lot of patience as this alters the atmosphere. I would recommend less time there and more time in other parts of the country - Fes, Rabat, Essaouria. But you can’t go to Morocco without going to Marrakesh.
Because I’ve already been posting enough about food let’s keep the theme going.
Mint tea, the best thing ever. Keeps you cool on a hot day. My server loaded it up with sugar cubes and it was great. I ate this with some couscous in the Djemma Al Fena square in Marrakesh - tourist hotspot but still cool to visit!
The (one of many) results of Turkish presence in Germany. One of the best things about Berlin.
