Moroccan tea is the essence of life.

Living in London you might think it’s ok to drink almost every night and soothe yourself to sleep in other parts of the world, it doesn’t even cross peoples’ minds. We had dinner with the Moroccans and some of them had freshly squeezed juice and water for a drink. No alcohol was mentioned! We had an amazing time!

Horses in Marrakesh

My husband and I love horses. We have a horse in Barcelona! In Marrakesh you can ride horses, camels and do all sorts of things. We decided to give it a go and ride horses. Before I say anything I must mention we are spoiled in Barcelona with the best teachers, amazing horse club and the location of the club. In Marrakesh the horse club is run by a French lady.

Jemaa el-Fnaa — Marrakesh Medina the souq

Our evening ended with a dinner in Marrakesh medina in other words Jemaa el-Fnaa. UNESCO proclaimed it Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The square knows the real meaning of street food. I found it amusing when every stall tried to get us to sit down at their place for dinner. They were super insistent.

Night time shopping

It was my first time to wonder around the market at night. I am not a night person. I love mornings. However, we went around as the atmosphere was alive it inspired us to walk around. After a meal it’s great to walk around too! We decided to get some cotton clothes for our road trip in Morocco.
