Moroccan Half and Half

At night, Marrakesh’s Jemaa El Fna Square transforms into a mesmerizing smoke-soaked market, entertainment venue and food haven.

From a distance, rhythmic drumming and the lights of a thousand fires captivate, dividing ghostly shadows and eerie soot filled skies, into a seductive half and half.

Eerie  Jemaa El Fna Square

Eerie Jemaa El Fna Square

Watching from the sidelines, but no less beguiling, a series of dazzling shops, attached so closely, one to the other, that they appear as one, rather than two. Glowing Moorish lanterns and lamps of every shape, size and colour compete with a kaleidoscope of fabrics and slippers, beckoning us helplessly toward them like an oasis in the desert.

  2. I love this square! So much energy and excitement – not to mention a great place to try roasted sheeps head.

    • Roasted sheep’s head?! 😮 You are brave…there’s no way I could eat that, though my hubby would have no problem at all with it, and would probably even crave it. Lol.
