Berber Breakfasts, Atlas Mountains, Morocco

Berbers know best: Travelling through Morocco's section of the Atlas Mountains, time-honoured cafes run by the indigenous community serve simple but soul-warming fare, with flat breads, omelettes and hot mint tea being a balm for chilly mornings.

  4. That second photo looks like a crispy version of our roti canai. Those scenery photos with smiling faces, you managed to capture the very essence of the place. You should submit some of these photos (those with human subjects in them) to some photography competitions...and I think you'd do well. ^_~

    1. Contact.ewew: you're right, it's very similar to roti canai, paratha, etc - it's called m'semen, also folded and layered, made with lots of melted butter on an oily griddle, heheh :) thanks for the encouragement on the photos, much appreciated! maybe someday - i'll have to improve the technical aspects of my pics, but for now, i'm just enjoying the process of taking them without any pressure or expectations, heh :D
