Marrakech Stories and Tips

Getting lost in the souks is easy!

Be brave & wander!  You'll find art everywhere! Photo, Marrakech, Morocco

I was determined not to get lost in the souks, but did anyway. You can always pay some children to help you find your way out, but once we were ripped off of all our coins, we found that the shopkeepers will point you in the right direction for free. Even though we'd been in souks in Egypt before, this one off Djemaa El Fna square was even more overwhelming & draining on the senses. Watch out for the donkey carts. If you don't heed the warning of the driver, you may just get shoved hard into the wall, as I did.
