TRAVEL THE WORLD - MARAKESH, MOROCCO
Here we are in 2002 with members of our tour group in the famous Jemma El-Fna square in Marrakesh. The square is huge, and was very crowded. For entertainment, there were lots of buskers - musicians, magicians, snake charmers, dancers. After dark, we were taken to one of the food vendors where we had a dinner of grilled chicken accompanied by wine served in Coke bottles, drinking wine in public being illegal in Morocco. I think the authorities turned a blind eye not wanting to interfere with the success of Marrakesh tourism.
