Relatively clean, though standards changed the 3 nights we were there. Great place to meet fellow backpackers, as with any other hostel. Satisfying breakfast of mint tea, bread and moroccon pancakes. Butter is served everyday, but cheese and cake every other day. The people who run the riad aren't the friendliest, and don't initiate any help for your stay in morocco. Not the best place to find tourist information.

Kamal calls everyone to their seats and I take mine with eyes downcast, feeling like Mr Bumble in Oliver Twist. My position as "life-changing volunteer" has, I am certain, been downgraded to "useless person".

... outside double as either bouncy balls or ammunition and some minutes later I am finally able to pinpoint this as the very obvious setting for the majority of Reservoir Dogs. There is a lonesome rusty nail to be found by the entrance. Probably innocent although it does give off the distinct vibe of ominous warning.
Unsure as to what to do with myself other than stand around, blending my awkward demeanor and confused face with the surroundings, I ...
... and even more performers come out of the woodwork. There were strolling astrologers, healers, and cross-dressing belly dancers. And storytellers recite tales of ancient times, alongside mobile dentists’ booths that display teeth in jars! For all of this life and rich history, Unesco declared Djemaa El-Fna a “Masterpiece of World Heritage” in 2001.
As we began walking through this massive plaza, passing by a non-descript rug laid out on ...
... s weird but kind of fun actually. We met several locals who, for a small tip, lead us through the lesser traveled streets of the Medina for a look beyond the storefronts. A student named Mustafah took us to the ovens downstairs from the souks (stores) where the local women bake their bread and roast nuts. We stopped by a shop where men dyed scarves and blankets with natural vegetable dyes (cool pics) ...
