A Fantasia

by keeweechic

The scene is quite dark at times until more are in the arena with more lights on them. The final scene is all the horses and their riders charging and firing their rifles in unison as they come to an abrupt stop in front of the wall which is repeated for effect. The whole scene is described as some kind of a war ceremony, a fantasia.

Cafe Ennaser

by barryg23 about Caf├ęs

This became our regular breakfast cafe in Marrakech. I'm not sure what in particular attracted us. It's on one of the busiest roads on the medina and is one of your typical male-dominated cafes. However, the waiters were friendly, drinks were cheap and it was right beside a crepe stand, from where you could order delicious cheap Moroccan crepes. (Moroccan crepes are saltier and more savoury than traditional French ones - well worth trying)

Ben Youssef Medersa

by iwys

Tihs medersa or religious school was founded in the fourteenth century. At one time it housed more than 800 students. You can visit their rooms, even their bathroom, and see examples of how they were typically furnished. Admission 40dh (60dh for Ben Youssef Medersa, Marrakesh Museum and Almoravid Koubba)

Marrakech

"About the Red City"

Marrakech wish is Moroccan people called the red city or Al Hamra.. is one of the most beautiful cities in Morocco, its people are a mix of Arab and Berber, many of its residents being rural immigrants from surrounding rural regions and further south. The economy of the city includes administrative activities and modern shops and services. There is still a wide range of handicraft production and small scale industry particularly in the medina. There are also a number of factories and industrial units, notably in agro-processing. However, the city economy and employment are heavily dependent on tourism. Marrakech being one of the most important tourist attractions of Morocco and many of the cities large unemployed or under employed labor force supplement their incomes by casual work with tourists.

Marrakech is the largest city in Morocco and getting growing up Its beauty lies in its atmosphere and its spectacular location, with the extraordinary peaks of the Atlas Mountains rising up behind the city. It has warm, humid summers and shimmering, white, snowy winters.

"Al Hamra Street Scene"

Like many North African and Middle Eastern cities, Marrakech comprised both an old fortified city (the medina) and an adjacent modern city (called Gueliz). It is served by Menara International Airport (RAK is the code for the city) and a rail link to Casablanca and the north. You can obtain a guide through the hotel desk but the cheaper way to do it is through the tourist office in Place 16 Novembre for around 150/200 dirham. Our guide was called Feta,(call me Feta, same as the cheese!) who was very knowledgeable about the area, history and culture and a really interesting personality. I would certainly recommend a guide the first time you go through the Souks and to give you the background to the city and culture

"JAmaa Al Fena"

Next follow your guide for a spectacle from the Arabian Nights through the Souks or covered markets. Here you sense the atmosphere and vitality of a medieval city. For here everything is made from scratch and in particular I found the metalworker's souk an assault on the senses with torches, burners and furnaces conquering up a vision of the underworld. There were insights into the amazing craftsmanship this city is deservedly famous and the spectacle of a family of 6 in a space no bigger than a desk making nails by hand. In the midst of all this you spy cats oblivious to the surrounding chaos snoozing. We were not very good a bartering, but by the end of the trip the shop keepers said we were like Berbers. Generally in the Souks they ask for about 4 times the "real" price so be prepared to bargain. You should first look at a "prix fixe" shop to get an idea of prices and aim to pay less in the souks. Remember your luggage allowance; it isn't a bargain if you have to pay six pounds / Kg to an airline to get it home! There are 14 main Souks and whilst not obvious to the visitor there is a definite structure.
