Trip Report Beautiful Morocco Sep/15 part 2

Jump to last reply

Today we have a guide to take us through the labyrinth of this old city that will take us back in time to when it was built in the 8th century. Once we entered the medina there were donkeys and carts and people busy with their day to day chores walking the narrow streets, vendors calling you in to look at their wares. I can't describe the smells that assaulted us, there was mint, spices, meat and donkey dung all mixed into one exhilarating scent. We visited mosques and souks where their goods spilled onto the pavement. There were sacks of spices, live chickens. goat heads, dried fruit and dates. Everywhere you looked there was something fascinating to see. Call to prayer is held five times a day and the eerie haunting sound can be heard wherever you are. I was really looking forward to seeing the tannery but unfortunately it was closed for repair so that was disappointing.
That evening we decided to venture out to find a restaurant for dinner. We had instructions from the staff left, right, right, left off we went, only to return fifteen minutes later lost. More instructions only to find the restaurant closed! We decided to keep walking and finally found a place we could people watch and the food was simple but good.
