Monkey madness in Marrakech
07 October 2009 ~ 14:00For our 11th wedding anniversary Mark & I went to Marrakech, Morocco. It was very hot, 93 degrees F, and we had a good time lazing by the pool, shopping and sight seeing.
This is Mark & I with some barbary apes in Jemnaa El Fna Square, the main marketplace of the medina or old town. The moneys were very heavy and seemed well looked after. We even saw their keepers washing and brushing them.
There were lots of horses pulling carriages of tourists around the city and most (not all) the horses were also extremely thin. On principle I would have chosen a couple of well fed looking horses had we decided to take a ride.
The roads were sooo dangerous to cross, with no pedestrian crossings on the main road Mohammed V (you just had to take your life in your hands and jay walk, or jay run more like), and we saw whole families (Mum, Dad & their child) balanced on one scooter or moped, none wearing crash helmets! It was an interesting trip to say the least!
