Hotel Riad Nakhla, Essaouira
“Castles made of sand slip into the sea eventually.”

The locals here will point out a sand covered Kasbah at the end of the beach that they claim inspired Jimi Hendrix to write the song. In reality he released the song before he ever came to Morocco. Unlike the local folklore which makes you assume he practically made Essaouria his home in the late sixties. In reality he might have stayed here for about three days; the same length of time I’m staying. I wonder what myths will developed around my visit.
