World markets, Morocco

It is a men's world here, we only saw a sprinkling of local women. The rest of the women were us the tourists. Here man and his machine or non machine mingle, horse power vs donkey power. While we are so used to the gentrified markets of Western Europe and North Ameican, the primitive markets of another world is just as fascinating and more exotic. I've had the good fortune to visit a few. This was a market just one hour outside of Marrakech in the beautiful Ouirika valley. Looking at these, now 'old' pictures, I realised that I must return, I must find the time to return. Alas, the rest of the world is tugging at my heart strings....
