| Marrakesh, Morocco
Few places in Morocco have as much energy as Marrakech's Jemaa el Fna at night.
After ascending and descending Jebel Toubkal—Morocco's highest peak—in less than 48 hours, Chris, Susannah, and I were famished. We met several other friends in Marrakech and hit the food stalls of Jemaa el Fna square. After gorging ourselves on various meats, grains, and salads, we wobbled on shaky legs through the nighttime crowds, stopping to watch the snake charmers, storytellers, and acrobats that draw local and foreign onlookers alike each night.
Welcome to Ibn Ibn Battuta. I'm Andrew, and I have been sharing stories, cultural insights, and reflections from my travels around the world here since 2004, aiming to encourage armchair travelers to get out and explore. I hope you enjoy! More about me...
