After three days in hot Marrakech we got the bus to the seaside. Unlike Marrakech there is a constant strong wind in essaouira which makes it a haven for windsurfers and kiteboarders. Its a very relaxed seaside resort where all the houses have whitewashed walls and blues shutters.
The beach is a hive of activity and every morning we walked from the gates of the Medina to Diabat. Camels and horses were once essential for Moroccan agriculture but ...
