2013-05-28 - Moroccan Taxi

Along the road between Essaouira and Marrakech, while the bus stopped for a break, I took this photograph of a taxi dropping off some passengers. The majority of taxis I saw in Morocco were old Mercedes Benz, like this one. Despite a lot of these cars being from the 1970's, they're still going strong - a testament to the German engineering! This was significant to me because I learned to drive in a car very much like this: a 1976 Mercedes Benz 240D. It came all the way from Zimbabwe to Australia with us and was a fantastic car...
