A Day in Marrakech

First impressions of Marrakech? Well, yes it’s exotic. I walked into the Medina today with the intention of getting lost and I succeeded. The Medina is the ancient walled city with its maze of lanes and streets that anyone not from here will find impossible to navigate. My inauguration also included an unsolicited motor scooter ride to a place I did not want to go for the price of €10. I’ve arrived in Morocco. The day involved walking and walking while entirely lost and finished with dinner on a balcony overlooking Place Jemaa El Fna where the Berbers charm snakes accompanied by constant drumming and the voices of hawkers selling their wares. Welcome to Morocco.
