Friday Fix: Parade of the Giants, Marrakesh. 

This is the ninth edition of my bi-weekly series, Friday Fix, a quick burst of inspiration to spur you (and me) on through our final day in the office. The idea of these photos is to give you a glimpse of some of the most incredible things I've seen in a format you can digest in a coffee break... 


Celebration, parade of giants, Marrakesh, Morocco.


I wish I could explain to you what this was all about... 


Only a couple of days into my trip through Morocco, I stumbled upon this surreal scene entirely by accident. Speaking only the barest scraping of French and no Arabic whatsoever, I wasn't in a position to ask the locals.

This weeks Friday Fix is a homage to the unexplained- that curious feeling of finding yourself in an entirely alien situation which everyone else is taking in their stride.

When you find a single chicken's foot at the bottom of your soup or new friends burst into a "Happy Birthday" rendition you've never heard before, savour the moment. This is one of the things I miss the most in the UK.



If anyone has any idea what this parade was celebrating, I would be very grateful for an answer. It would have been some time near the end of June and took place through the streets of Marrakesh. Thank-you in advance!
