    The treatment of animals here is not right,
    Do not support them we would not allow it in the west.

    The narrow streets

    In the narrow streets it is easy to get lost, so ensure that you stay with your guide, else it could cost you quite a bit again to get out. These people do anything for a buck.

    A Square Shaped Sunset

    Djemaa el-Fna sunset

    Around half an hour before sunset, make your way down to Djemaa el-Fna and go to one of cafes/restaurants around the perimeter. Sit upstairs on the balcony and watch the sun set on Marrakesh

    Djema el Fna

    From my journal:

    'We walk right through the square – Jaama el Fna – quite an exciting place. Lots of colourful water sellers, dancers, musicians, men with monkeys and snake charmers.'

    Water vendors

    Marrakech, water vendors

    These watervendors are colourfully dressed but look more like circus artists than anything other.

    Don't try to come near to them or try to take picture - money, money, money.....

    Kiwi

    Marrakech, shoe polish

    The Kiwi you see on the parasols is not to welcome people from Kiwi land but shoe polish.
    We all walk on sandals so they miss clients

    Jemaa-al-Fnaa setting up for the night

    Jemaa-al-Fnaa starts to transform itself in the late afternoon, when the the food stalls are beginning to fill up the expanse that sits mostly empty during the day.

    You can't miss them on Djema El Fna. There are lots of them. Perfect to start the day with all necessary vitamins ;-)
