We spent Christmas in the old town of Marrakech. it was quite the experience! Warm sunny weather right as we get off the plain - a nice change from Geneva!
Nice looking airport
For dinner, a tajine at our riad (hotel)
From the rooftop of our riad
Walking to the Museum of Marrakech and Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa. The medina is very twisty and confusing - I had to ask directions many times, being sure to only ask from shopkeepers instead of young boys, who'd want to lead us there for a tip.
Inside the Musuem of Marrakech
Inside the Madrasa - lots of cell-like rooms for the students
A lot of the little cells had micro lofts for sleeping, you could climb up on these corner ladders
This is supposedly a student setup. Did they really cook their own meals?
In the markets
This stall sells kids clothing. Very creepy to see a bunch of headless kids hanging there!
Selling baby turtles and lizards
The Jemaa el Fna (main square/market) from a rooftop restaurant
