All you have to do is to keep the wind behind
Joseph Conrad, The shadow line
The wind, waves, seagulls, they welcome the traveler who arrives after a long journey to the ancient walled city of Essaouira.
The decadent charm it soon becomes very strong, the colors and sounds of the Medina, is the presentation of the city.
Its history, through millennia of civilization, famous for the production of purple during the Roman rule, continues to be a strategic port under occupation Berber, Portuguese and took the name of Mogador.
The coexistence of different races and cultures, was made possible by a strong spirit of tolerance and freedom of expression, association that has been passed down through time until today, issuing a strong positive energy that inspires many artists who have made it his home.
As an old lady ..
The charm is intact, even the wind, and salt damage to the old city walls of Essaouira a strong romantic ..
No one, no one can 'escape the old lady:
The first light of dawn on the terrace of a riad in the Medina
The photographer who seeks the shooting of a life
The gourmant that is lost in the spice bazahar
The artist, absorbed in a picture of the fish market
The surfer, as he waited, patient, HIS wave
The love, the twilight of the fortress of scale .... Along with a thousand cats that make a siesta
Those who, like us, got pushed by the wind at his back ..
Aday and a night in the life of Essaouira
The first meeting dates back to a September evening, I'm not sure what I’m searching if not escaping the deafening noise, the unbearable heat from the medina of Marrakesh.
On the road to Essaouira, meeting more than humanity, pastors who return with the harvest, small towns, many many children.
Obligatory stop for my driver: evening prayer, by the roadside.
The air is fresher, the sun sets behind the two small islands, sails kitesurfers color the sky, the beach is really great as the guide said.
Surfers crossing the street, camels resting lazy. How to get to Malibu in the 50 '.. but three hours from home, amazing ..
"L’Ocean Vagabond" is the outpost, the headquarters of the surfers in the area, Julien, the owner greets me warmly, boys and girls sunbathing, surfing the web waiting to jump back into the ocean. They drink mint tea, but also iced rosé wine, successful tradition imported from the coast blue., Au revoir les amis ...!
I walk the long stretch of beach that separates me from the ancient walls, the sun has set and for the first time in a long time I feel the need to cover me, I did not think it was such a nice feeling.
To imagine the night at Essaouira, You should at least have the right soundtrack in mind, free to travel with imagination while the old fortress open it’s doors: Inside, a world in its everyday life explodes in front of me, someone is selling fresh eggs wile few meters away a craftsman is busy forging iron.
The great history of the Berber capital, is preserved from ancient portals, within them lie beautiful Riad with their flower gardens. The mysterious beauty of ancient mansions, has remained intact, enhanced, or even tweak the taste of Europeans who made of discrete maison de vacance au maroc, thus preserving its ancient beauty
The eyes of the people you meet , are still curious to scrutinize a traveler, doesn’t happen in Paris, London.
Latif welcomes me in his restaurant, I like to remember that the first time I walked in, I thought it was one of the most beautiful places ever seen my life. The eclectic interior style, with beautiful paintings and pictures, the amazing music make a true unique atmosphere. Elisir is a true place of the soul.
The night wraps when I leave the medina, the cats have taken over the streets, at least until morning, when the first carts piled high with strawberries arrive, merchants will open their colorful shops, fishermen landed on the ground fish species ever seen, while buyers are fighting to search for good business, perhaps unaware of the fact of already having been caught by the lens of a photographer who wanted to fix scenes that rarely happens to watch in the big city.
