Jemaa el Fna Square in Marrakech at night

Even though he had much disdain for the heart of Marrakech and its people, Hassan dropped us off at Jemaa el Fna Square where we entered the throngs of people. We were among families passing through, snake charmers, outside cafes, scooters, men fishing for Coke and many various merchants. It was quite the scene. The square at night was magical.

Our approach to the center.

Negotiating with the fellas for M's necklace.

Fishing for Coke?

Scenes from the restaurant patio overlooking the square.

Nice pictures and very good souvenirs for me. Have you seen any goats in a tree yet?

No, we didn't see any of the goats in the trees. Apparently, locals will now place the goats in a tree just to get a handout. For those wondering what we're talking about, goats in Morocco will climb up the Argan tree? to get the Argan nuts for food. Seeing what an attraction this was, some folks have taken to unnaturally placing the goats in the trees.
