Thanks SOOOOO glad I got a camera!!!!

There was so much more I wanted to photograph, but really didn't have time. The villages are amazing. I found the whole experience like going back in time. People live a totally different way of life.

I avoided pictures of the animals in the square as I found it very cruel (monkeys and snakes) and they get money from tourists taking pictures and I didn't want to fuel the trade.

Also if you take money of people and their things you are expected to give them money and I really didn't have enough change LOL

Most of the people in Marrakech speak english or mainly french. We just got lost in the souks and found our way out.

There were some amazing sights. The guy sitting there gutting fish to sell, just on the floor, in the heat.... Vom. I could have probably spent a week just taking pictures, but I wouldn't have left more than a few square feet!!!

Wetted my taste buds for more travelling.....

That looks like an amazing place to visit! What's the food like? Indianish? More Mediterranean type?

I'm really glad you had a camera on you as well!

It's pretty much Moroccan! LOL!

They like meat. And couscous. And lots of sweet with savoury - which normally I can't stand, but they do it quite well. For instance, they make a 'pastilla' which is like an English pasty... Sort of. It's sweetish pastry and in the middle is meat and almonds. It's odd, but nice. And they cook a lot of kebabs and mainly tajines! I ate a lot of tajines. A lot of aubergine, which was scrummy. It's not spicy food, but uses a lot of spices.
