Déjà vu – Game of Thrones

Anybody who has spent any time travelling through Morocco and was paying sufficient attention while watching Season 3 of ‘Game of Thrones’ might have noticed the real-world locales standing in for the cities of Astapor and Yunkai: Essaouira and Ait Benhaddou, respectively.

While travelling in 2011 I had the privilege of visiting both these places. And I couldn’t help appreciating them again – even if they were suffering Daenerys Targaryen’s wrath.

Game of Thrones…

...real world.

…real world.

Game of Thrones…

...real world.

…real world.
