Marrakech – September 12

Spent last weekend in Marrakech intending to mostly take a break from all things Jewish and to simply enjoy the city. It was my first time to the red city. I was excited. Beyond Marrakech stands the south. The scenery was beautiful the whole ride down from Rabat. Spent our first two days in Rabat touring and getting to know the city. I was personally disappointed by one of Marrakech’s main attractions, the Jamaa El Fna, a large open air food court complete with snake charmers and story tellers, but that could easily be that 1) my expectations were too high and 2) Ramadan overshadows it.
