Marrakech Bike Race - Tour de Maroc - Maroco

Marrakech is a truely great place to visit. Not so much the newer, French colonial style city with its modern shops, resturants and boulevards, but for the old tightly packed and teeming town. People, motor bikes and peddle bikes everywhere, all seemingly aiming for each other, the crowd and ones self but with never a collision or cross word. Almost everyone speaks Arabic and French but fortunately for me, with little knowledge of either language, many aspire to English, not necessarilly "as she is spoke" but well enough to make themselves understood.

This panorama started off as a picture of the Hotel Terrasse Panoramique - you can just make out its sign if you look carefully, but the passing bikes set me on a whimsical course, so please excuse me for fabricating this  scene of the penultimate stage of the Tour de Maroc with Yellow Jersey now beginning to flag. Tomorrows final dash to the finis atop the neaby Atlas mountains will indeed be a gruelling one. Who knows who the overal winner will be!

If you want to meet a lot of good natured people go to Marakech. I can really recommend it!

NB No cyclists were harmed during the making of this panorama.

Описание для места - Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.

The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.

Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.

In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.
