Jemaa El Fna, Morocco

Marrakesh is one of the darkest cities that I’ve ever flown into- 10 o’clock and almost nothing to see. Once you get out of the airport it’s an entirely different story, a hive of activity that you can spend hours trying to decipher.

I’m staying in a riad right in the medina, deep in the Souks about a 15 minute walk away from the main square- the Jemaa El Fna. And right now I’m tapping away on a non qwerty keyboard and across the little alley way from the internet cafe is a chicken butcher with live chickens, a beef butcher with body parts hanging from hooks. Morocco is no place for vegetarians. The alleyway itself is filled with crazy two stroke motor cycles, donkey carts, veiled women, a million cats and the call to prayer.

Must dash- more soon.

Kat-ee and I have consumed crazy amounts of “craphammer” – which is 2 parts single malt good scotch (hammer) and 4 parts coke (crap) and become quite proficient at dodging insane motorbikes at high speed in tiny alleys.

No vegetarians? What has Sean been eating? Oh wait, that would be craphammer.
