Almost every tourist traveling to Egypt will name Pyramids, Sphinx, Luxor, Valley of the Kings or Moses Mountain as the main attractions of the land of the Pharaohs.
Of course, those places for sure are worth a visit, and it’s good to see them with your own eyes, but you have to keep in mind, that the greatest treasures can be hidden in the suburbs of the industrial cities, far from regular tourist routes and the popular Red Sea region.
Image this: great mountains sparkling in the sun with all colours of the rocks and juicy green plants on its hills, small waterfalls and huge cascades, brooks hidden in the forest quietly whispering the song of nature… Sounds good? Well, that place really exists!
If you will ever be in Agadir (Morocco) and you will want to get away for a short while from civilization and see uncontaminated by human hands landscapes, you should explore the waterfalls Imouzzer des Ida – Outanane, located less than 60 km from the tourist resort mentioned above.
Walking around old palaces of former rulers of Turkey, India or Arabic countries let you always, sooner or later, find a special place – Harem.
I had the opportunity to see harem rooms in Spain, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, India and several other places in the world. All were enormously decorated and luxuriously furnished. They had also beautiful gardens and fountains with life-giving water.
All that places made me wonder, and I am curious, did you, my dear reader, have you ever wondered how it was exactly to live there?
Are you tired of running between attractions of Bangkok? You saw enough of Temples and you survived a visit in the crowdy Royal Palace?

There is a place in Morocco, where the magic happens. The stories of djinns and Arab princesses, dangerous warriors and good rulers, mingle with shout of local retailers. Smell of fruits intertwined with aromas of oriental spices, to die for a moment in a sea of smoke escaping from portable furnaces and ovens standing in rows next to each other.
Women dressed in “jelaba” – traditional Moroccan robes. Almost all of them have hands painted with henna. In that intricate patterns are enchanted wishes of happiness, love and protection from the evil eye.
All that happens, in the shadow of the most famous mosque of the city, next to souku, which attracts thousands of shoppers.
How many Thai people, so many tastes, how many tourists, so many dishes… or at least you can feel this way, when you see first time “Street Food” in Thailand. I must admit, however, that first encounter with a meals of this area made Me considerable consternation.
Dozens of things loved by the Thai people, the average European or American would not even treat as a meal or food, at least at first glance…
