Dining in Marrakech

As for the food, we chose a café terrace a short distance from the Plaza de la Jama el Fna for lunch, and a food stall in the Plaza de la Jama el Fna for dinner.

We chose tajine for lunch and brochette and couscous for dinner. The taste is not good.



It was the effect of the food poisoning of the previous two days, but his appetite seemed to have come back a lot. But his appetite seemed to have come back, but he still wasn’t at his best. Because of that, his physical strength was not back yet. But fortunately, we only visited Marrakech on this day, and there was a riad near the center of the city, so we had enough time for sightseeing and didn’t exhaust our strength excessively.

Marrakech was a very charming city!

I’ll try to write down my overall impression of the last city of Marrakech.

For me, Marrakech was the first place where I came into contact with authentic North African Arab culture. The density of Arab people and city, the dustiness of the city, and the friendliness of the people were certainly there in Marrakech, but I felt that they were calmer than Arabs in Jerusalem and Palestine. It may be that I just got used to Arabs a little, but I think they were not as pushy as Jerusalem and Palestine.

Even so, Marrakech is energetic because it is one of the best cities in Morocco. Tourists also come from all over the world. Certainly I saw people from various countries. Especially, I think there were many European people such as French and German.

The most attractive point of this city is that it has both Arab bustle and royal cultural assets. In particular, the beauty of the interior of the Ben Youssef Madrasa, the Marrakech Museum located on the north side of the Jamaa el Fna Square, was remarkable.

I would love to revisit Marrakech sometime.
