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.
