Marrakech (Marrakesh)

WE got to Marrakech on Thursday 20th June. It is a city of about 1 million residents and 99% are Muslims.

Riad in Marrakech

This was our Riad (hotel) in Marrakech. 3 story with a rooftop terrace , with TV and air-con. The pool was about 5m long and 1.5m deep.

These are street scenes from the Medina. It was a Friday and good Muslims go to prayers and generally have the day off. As a result the Medina was almost empty of locals, except the stall holders and tourists. Narrow streets and lots of stalls selling almost everything.

Right slap bang in the middle of the Medina was this green oasis, running water and plants, a real treat.
