Essaouira, on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, is a welcome change from the aggressive vendors and motorcycle laden streets of Marrakech. The fortified city rests inside its castle walls, well shielded from the sun, wind, and heat outside the city. Vendors line the streets and sell similar products to Marrakech, but they hardly even ask you to look at their goods, much less grab your arm and try to pull you inside. Outside the city walls is a beach town with high winds, kite surfing, and beach camels. I shot some video that I'll put up later, in the meantime here are some coastal camels in front of Mogador Island.
