"The smell of fresh fish fills the warm, damp air as picture-perfect cobalt boats are strung together by men with wind-worn faces. This is a rare calm moment in Essaouira's bustling harbor as the fishermen come in with their daily catch. They work hard, embarking hours before dawn, returning to port just as the city begins to come to life. This is a glimpse into everyday life on the Moroccan coast."
