The Night Market at Jemaa el Fna – Marrakech, Morocco


Photo of the Day – The Night Market at Jemaa el Fna – Marrakech, Morocco

Jemaa el Fna is one of the highlights of visiting Marrakech! My Mom and I went here on 2 different nights and each time had great experiences. The amount of people, chaos, and interesting activity is non-stop as are the persistent food stand promoters.

When you go to Marrakech, make sure you check-out the view of the market from one of the nearby restaurants or bars that is elevated – thats where I got this picture!

The Perfect Courtyard Pool – Ali Ben Youssef – Marrakech, Morocco


Photo of the Day – The Perfect Courtyard Pool – Ali Ben Youssef – Marrakech, Morocco

About a week ago I posted regarding the Courtyard Wall of Alhambra. Although I still love the Courtyard at Alhambra, it is clear where the style came from and its home is in Morocco itself. The Courtyard at Ali Ben Youssef is absolute bliss. The incredible hand carved walls, the beautiful blue and green tile work, and then simple, timeless and classic fountain pool in the middle add up to one remarkable place. Can you tell I’m in love with this place? :)
