Marrakech Series: Motorbikes in the Medina I
These days the Medina is synonymous with the rumbling sound. Motorbikes whizzing through the narrow streets of the Kasbah, dodging traffic to get to the other side. Brown, blue, white djellabas blowing in the wind. Apart from being the most conventional way to navigate through heavy traffic, most Marrakechis choose to commute on bikes because they are simply more affordable than cars and marginally cheaper to maintain. This medieval city with a Berber spirit dating back to the neolithic period is a fusion of crafty Amazigh traditions, Moorish architectural trails and the people that ride through it all.
