Our time in Marrakech was short and sweet. We arrived around 9pm from Essaouira, quickly checked into our traditionally tiled hostel (Riad Chez Lea), and wandered out to find a late dinner. We discovered Le Salama, a restaurant close to the main square, which easily satisfied our thirst with local wine and beer, and silenced our hunger growls by serving what seemed like endless plates of meaty Moroccan deliciousness (see first three photos below, shot on iPhone 5s). The next morning we nursed our wine hangovers with pizza, salad and cafe au lait at Cafe France, a very popular cafe with three floors of terraces overlooking the main square of Marrakech. After recuperating we ventured into the medina for the remainder of the day, souvenir shopping, enjoying the smells of spices and the taste of sweets – and of course, getting in a little quality time with the local snake charmers!

It’s common knowledge that China and animal cruelty go hand-in-paw like egg, fry and rice. However, the Chinese government has attempted a country-wide clean up of the image it emits when on the subject of mistreatment of animals for consumption. This mistreatment of all things fluffy was once rife at the …

January 10/11:  After returning back from the Cameron Highlands, I anxiously waited near my phone, anticipating news of the Oscar nominees.
