Travels Through Morocco - Marrakesh, Part Two
The aromas, the sounds, the sights. Marrakesh is guaranteed make your head spin.
One of the main attractions of Marrakesh is Jemaa el-Fna Square, situated in the heart of Marrakesh's medina. During the day, this imposing and brilliant area is full of people as far as the eye can see. The square is totally filled with fruit sellers, performers, animals, snake charmers, public speakers, spice stands, merchants, and so much more I can't even begin to describe it.
As the day draws to the a close and night draws near, the snake charmers and animal performers slowly depart and the dancers, acrobats, musicians and food stalls begin to slowly appear. Close to a hundred food stalls at any given time are open to tourists and locals alike, with chefs shouting at you from all directions demanding that you eat at their place. The square suddenly becomes a hazy mist of noise and scents that you simply can't ignore as you trawl from food tent to food tent in the hope of securing a decent meal.
As evening time ends and the families turn in for the night, the music blares louder and louder, with hordes of people beginning to form around the music. Massive crowds of people are simply dancing, singing and having an amazing time. This is why Marrakesh was my favourite city in Morocco. The festivities went on until the early hours of the morning. No alcohol was to be seen, and I didn't feel unsafe. All there was was lots of dancing, laughter, stories told and pure merriment.
And this all starts again at the crack of dawn. I love Marrakesh.
