Photographer's Note

Another shot of the Djemaa el Fna taken at sunset, but it was a rainy afternoon, no sun but the sky is glowing with the sunset colors. In order to get this POV, you have to pay for a couple of drinks to go up on one of the balcony of a restaurant. I was here just a few weeks after the bombing on one of the restuarant in the square, so there is some concerns, but I guess there is potential danger everywhere we go. I wouldn't be travelling if I was worry all the times.

The main square in the medina of Marrakesh, Djemaa el Fna is busy with lot of things going on all day.
Musicians, dancers, story-tellers, snake charmers, water sellers in their colourful costumes. It is a fun place to walk around any time of day, but night time is much more lively and a wonderful place to try out the local food from different stalls. I started out with refreshing fresh squeezed orange juice, best is to ask for no ice, you get 100 percent juice and less water down, and if you like snail, it would served as a good appetizer. Every stalls will want to pull you in to eat at their palce. I looked to see where the most local people eat, and I ate there and it was a wonderful meal, very tasty and cheap.
