There is no way to be in Marrakech and miss Jemaa el Fna. Quite the opposite - it's an unmissable place where one should see its busy crowds, smell its scents, hear its sounds and taste its flavours. My heart was won by incredibly delicious orange juice.

This square is like no where else I have ever seen. Hectic at time but you soon get used to it. A nice mix of tourists and local Marrakeshi people. Make sure you do at least one evening there as the sun sets as you an watch it jump into action.

I took a selfie with a Monkey, and I shot a video of my girlfriend with the Cobra guy. Yeah, he's got the Cobra with the little clarinet and the whole bit. The monkey guys will take ten Dirhams for a selfie. The Cobra guy doesn't awaken his viper for less than a twenty.

Morning, Noon and night. The place give so many perspectives of lives. Please in different days try to see different times of the day of your trip. Eat, listen , smell , see , touch , take a photo and try to dance with locals . Maybe you could think differently but be sure to take your place of this show.
