Imagine waking up in a cool chamber of a beautiful riad to the sound of the running water in the fountain of the internal courtyard. It is fresh, quiet and peaceful. But the moment you leave your shelter the energy of the streets overwhelms you: smell of exotic spices and touch of silk, turquoise blue and dusty terracotta of the pottery and precious stones. It moves and evolves and you don’t even understand where you are and how to return back home in the labyrinth of the ancient souks.
