Cats having rest in the medina, Chefchaouen, Morocco

I wanted to travel to Morocco by boat in order to experiment visually the continent change from Europa to Africa. Only on land travelling make the passenger really feel the distance and the cultural evolution all along the way. Since I had previously visited Sevilla, Malaga was for me an obvious starting point for a short Morocco trip. Then I would go to gibraltar, Tarifa and take the boat for Tangier, my first Morocco city. The trip lasted 3 weeks until I reach south of Atlas Mountain Range, just before the desert.

The conclusion of my travel is that I could not recognize any Moroccan people anymore since I could realize that from north to south, and depending of the mountain side landscape, geography and people are totally different.

The ambiency in medinas amazed me. Architecture and closes sometimes reminded me the first Star Wars episode from the 70's, especially the men with pointed hood at top of their djellabas who surely inspired Georges Luca for Obiwan Kenobi coat design.

Herero Dolls Damaraland Namibia South Western Africa

The Herero women take enormous pride in their full and weighty outfits and have also developed a sideline in making and selling dolls wearing exact replicas of the dresses to tourists. This brings additional income into the Herero homes.
