Marrakech snapshots

We had a super time in Marrakech, it really was a great to go somewhere so different.
The whole city is full of nooks and crannies waiting to be explored and often adorned in beautiful mosaics and wood carvings.

In between the shopping (or should I say constant haggling!), stork spotting
(shown in the pic above in their massive nests on the city walls) and wandering about in the sun
we found some time to relax on the roof terrace of our lovely Riad with the sound
of the hustle and regular calls for prayer across the city.
I've never really ventured out of the Mcdonalds and Starbucks filled western world so it was a super experience to be sharing the streets with snake charmers, loaded donkeys, piles of herbs and spices, stalls full to the brim of lanterns and shiny teapots!
I now need a good recipe for mint tea...I drank so much when I was there and love it!
So tips are very welcome!
A lovely mini-break....pure escapism! I even tried belly dancing!!!
Thanks Marrakech!
