Who would expect to be cold in Marrakech in February while in Barcelona we are around 13 degrees Celsius! Besides, Marrakech and the Canary Islands have, more or less, the same latitude! Well, today was rainy and cold for most of the day, although it is true that it comes and goes all the time. So yesterday we spent another day in the souks buying some gifts! And I found a new patch for one of my jackets! Woohoooo! I also bought a nice Tuareg neckless for my collection made with silver and ebano! My collection is growing day by dayâ€¦ i have some from Sweeden, Tanzania, La Palma, Marrakech, â€¦ My mother bought lamps, bracelets, incienso and a small carpet.
Around 13.30 we went to have lunch to a restaurant recommended in Lonely Planet. It was called Restaurant Foucauld. It is an awesome restaurante if you want to have typical food for cheap! From there we headed towards Rue Riad Zitoun El Jedid to visit Dar Si Said. Everyone told us it was worthile, and being such a cold day, we decided that to spend some time indoors was the best idea! â˜º The place was ok, but nothing to be thrilled about! It is not very well preserved. Once our visit was over, we went back to Jamaa El Fna! If you ask me I would say it is the soul of this city! You can stay there for hours just looking around and being entretained by any of the shows going on.
Around 5.30 we went back to the Riad, as at 8pm we were heading to the Chez Ali Show. The show includes dancers, musicians, acrobats, horsemen and a typical dinner. Everyone I know who has been in Marrakech has visited the place to see the show.
After the show we came straight to the Riadâ€¦ I had to keep writting my travel blog â˜º
