The Medina in Marrakech.

Marrakesh has a big bazaar area inside the city wall and it was a confusing maze with no clear system to the lay-out. It was of course a huge selection of things to buy, some more tempting than others.

We saw several work shops with a primitive lathe.

  1. Hei, Steinar! Som alltid interessant å lese blogg av deg. Synest du er god til å ta informative og forteljande bilde om det no er av overnattingssteder, klatrande geiter, høgt til vêrs på kamelryggen eller blant teppene. Ser ut som du har hatt ein flott tur!
