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.

That, also was confronting with snake charmers, monkeys, and very sad donkeys & mules, let alone the magnitude of people that were there. Not for claustrophobic people like myself.
For those who are animal lovers we do have some good news stories.
Firstly, we were ...
... had even brought their weighing scales to town and were earning a couple of dirhams from passersby who were curious about their weight.
The food in Marrakech is worth the trip alone. The cuisine is generally very healthy (although the amounts we consumed were not) tagines are the local specialty and there seems to be a strong focus on using seasonal local produce. Places we ate are reviewed on trip advisor (links below) including Al Bakara where my ...
... with Jamal last week from Ourika to Sugr and today’s hike—but it still only adds to 47 kilometers, a long way from a Superhike. But I’m sure I’ll stretch this hike out to 100 kilometers eventually.
Back on the main road we enjoy a decent tagine, sitting at a table down by the river… talking about family, faith and how things are changing here in Morocco… once again it’s been really ...
