When the holy day of Eid Al-kbir (also Eid al-Addha) coincided with the beggining of the christian year of 2007, Marrakesh turned into itself and muslims came out into the streets to honour Ibrahim, who promised to sacrifice his own son when God asked him to. In this sacrificing day, millions of lambs were beheaded in Morocco.While crossing over the Mellah (old jewish quarter) the heads of lambs were grinning morbidly inside the flames while figures came out of the luminous mist. Part of the celebration includes sharing the animal with poor people.

Spent the night in the Dunes and this was riding the camels out of the dunes the next morning. Would do it again in a second... wonderful night under the stars!
After a sandstorm
Ok, ok, not the 29 Palms town from California and probably, not the 29 Palms from the song either - just a small oasis in the middle of vast Saharan "sandness" near Merzouga. My northerner's nature found the sight quite surreal and forced me to press the shutter. Hope you like this shadowy refuge too :)
