My first 2 hours in Marrakech were not very enjoyable. My first thoughts were "I paid thousands of dollars and flew for a total of 16 hours for a vacation in Morocco only to be harrassed and cursed?" (Yes, I was called a m***r f****r by a would be guide. Funny how he didn't know much English until then.) But after a shower and safely stowing our luggage at Riad Jnane Mogador, we ventured out on Djemaa el Fna with fresh faces and fresh perspectives. After getting used to the overwhelming noise and putrid smells it became bearable and finally very enjoyable.
My first goal was to hold a monkey; I'm sure this is also a priority on everybody's 'to do' list.
After walking through a couple souks we headed back to Jnane Mogador, had an awesome dinner on their terrace and called it a day.
