Morocco Series: Marrakesh by Night


Marrakesh becomes an even busier, more stimulating place by night. The food vendors fill Djemaa el-Fna and the souqs are lit with lanterns and the reflections of all the metal work, ceramics, leather goods, jewelry, wood crafts, and so much more.

I tend to find beauty in older things with a bit of patina and wear.

It was a treat to watch this young guy making wares and other wooden objects using what he called “Moroccan black and decker;” his feet, a chisel, and a bow and rod.

The square at night from a rooftop cafe – quite different by night right?

Back down in the square entering the food stalls – everyone asks you to eat at their stall, and you can get so many delicious foods – vegetables, meats, fish, soup, fresh squeezed juice…the list goes on.
