Jammin’ in the Jemaa el Fna!

Miki and Kev pretend to know what they are doing

When you enter the square of Jemaa el fna in Marrakesh, you can see why it’s classed as one of the wonders of the modern world. It is a huge open space, and upon arriving you are assaulted by tour guides, snake charmers, trinket sellers, the works. You are also assaulted by musicians, as you can see in this pic!  I had a lot of fun jamming with them, but trying to avoid paying everyone of them individually was less fun!

Kev digs in (again)

At night, a host of outdoor restaurants magically appear, and we took advantage, eating delicious Moroccan cuisine under the stars, washed down with mint tea.

You know when you've been Tango'd

Surrounding the square were a myriad of Orange juice stalls, where you could by a glass of freshly-squeezed juice for about 20p. Amazing!

  2. Hi Kev,
    I was there in November for about a week and it was amazing to be in that area of town.Getting off the local bus and just following the sound of the drums before sunset on my first day there was magical. Sitting down in one of the roof top cafes where you could see everything down below was great.Going down the alleyways with the various stalls either side and motor bikes and cycles trying to get through as fast as possible was part of the fun I guess.Not much fun though when the alleyways got narrower and just seemed to go to a dead end. The sound of drums had gone but eventually I heard them again after about an hour to get out of the maze.Great to have seen Marrakesh but if I go again I will have to see some of the places you saw in Morocco.Took a train trip to Casablanca and apart from the train journey there and back it was a big let down. …………Tony

  3. Thanks – we look forward to it, too!

    Tony: You get around nearly as much as me! We had a bit of ‘insider’ info: Miki’s brother was once stationed in Casablanca with the French army and said we needn’t really visit it as a priority. The places we did go however, were indeed magical.
