Finding Our Way To Djemaa el Fnar Square
Scenes from Marrakech Medina
Upstairs for Photographs and a Breeze
We opted for an upstairs restaurant because it caught the breeze, and we had a birds eye view of the square. This meant taking photos with the zoom lense that wouldn’t be possible if we were actually in the Square. If you take photos of the men with their monkeys, the snake charmer and various other acts….they will be chasing you for money!
We managed a front table which was great as we could see all the action while we had a tasty tuna salad. Their pizzas looked pretty good too.
We walked through a lovely park, and then went in search of a hotel that is supposed to have a spectacular garden. Sadly it was shut.
So back we went through the souk which we had missed. The usual array of local spices, clothing, bags, slippers, pottery, etc was all there. And of course the men… trying to get us to take a look. However, their cajoling antics didn’t work….we were not easily deterred. We were ready for a cold shower and a rest.
Dinner in the Square
We opted for a restaurant across from .......7 Heaven I think it was called, be cause we had tired feet and preferred to sit down. With a sprayer to cool the air and good views into the Square, we could see all the action while we ate.Delicious tajines, salads, Pizzas and other Moroccan dishes were all on the menu and we enjoyed the freshly squeezed orange juice and fruit salad for afters.
Well satisfied but weary, we managed to meander around the alleyways and straight home…..without getting lost!
