With the Morocco vs. Algeria football match taking place in Marrakech, an escape to the laid-back ocean town of Essaouira was the perfect idea.
So the two laid in the sun, walked barefoot in the ocean, lunched on fresh seafood and wandered through the old medina in search of some Moroccan goodies. Passing colourful doorways, white-washed buildings, and soaking up the laid-back atmosphere. A cup of gelato made it all the more perfect.
And when they returned home to Marrakech, Moroccans celebrating the 4-0 win over Algeria had mostly dispersed.
