Ben Huberman at WordPress asks us to post a nighttime photo for this weeks challenge. I haven’t really got very many, I’m to lazy to use a tripod and I don’t take my camera out much at night. I did find this one though, taken at a Riad in Marrakech a few years ago.
In the heart of the medina in Marrakech lies a beautiful haven of peace. Even it’s name, Houdou, means serenity, in Arabic. It’s a 17th century mansion, with an inner courtyard, shady and green with citrus trees and the ever present buntings chanting their song. The roof is part shaded and part in full sun, a lovely place to rest and enjoy a view of the Atlas on a clear day. There is a hammam and if you’re too hot from shopping in the souk, there is a plunge pool to cool you down. Food is freshly prepared, local but with influences from the French owners.
I’ve tried to show you what it’s like INSIDE a traditional riad, I hope you like it and if ever you visit Marrakech I recommend it highly!
Can you show us Inside? Maybe you would like to see other interpretations to inspire you.
