Djemaa el-Fna Square

This is the great square of Marrakesh. It’s hard to explain what it’s like but here’s a few pictures. Beware – one of the pictures is of snakes. Note the fashion statement – ball cap worn with hijab being the most interesting one we’ve noted recently. Locals and tourists alike mill around drinking fresh made juice concoctions (avocado, orange and banana is our current favourite), eating at 100 food stalls which are set up and torn down daily, shopping for bargains, listening to street performers…… I know I’ve said it in a previous blog – but this place is like no where I’ve ever seen before. The first picture shows a small fraction of the square (which isn’t even remotely square).

  1. Oh my gosh! The bright colorful displays of the vendors, curious snakes, and the various garbs of the locals all combined for a once in a life time experience! Lucky gals are you 3. Just loving your commentaries Kim. Can’t wait until you are home for a nice chat.

  2. Loved this square when we were there. Sitting in a second floor restaurant sipping mint tea and watching all the action.
