We have had a great day in Marrakech. Doesn't it just sound so exotic.
From there we drove to the Medina of Marrakech and visited a berber spice shop and the harem of the Palais de la Bahia, built in the 19th century for the grand vizier of the sultan.
We then drove to the Djemaa El Fna Square where we had lunch while Hassan went to Friday prayers. We then had a wander in the square, which I didn't enjoy all that much as the snake charmers and people with monkeys were very aggressive. Hassan then took us into a souk where we did some souvenir shopping - Alan has turned to be an expert bargainer.
We had a chance for a rest at the hotel before we set out for dinner, which was very welcome.
Tonight we went back to the square which was packed. It was interesting to walk around and see everything going on, and to see the food stalls, outdoor Cafes and all sorts of people selling all sorts of things. It was much more enjoyable than during the day.We went to a restaurant where we had a traditional Moroccan meal with entertainment, which included a very attractive belly dancer.
