    This place is wonderful. The manager, Siham and the owner, Jacqueline, are delightful and attentive, and the riad is beautiful. My wife was on crutches and had to stay behind one day, and they prepared her a lovely lunch at no extra charge. Food tip: there are very few options nearby. Dar Zellij nearby is glitzy and wildly overpriced. The riad will prepare you a lovely meal that is better and somewhat less expensive or, if you feel adventurous, venture up the side street behind the riad where you will find lots of street food. We ate like kings for about $3 per person, and had a great walk through a bustling, untouristy part of the city.

    We flew non-stop from JFK to Casablanca, then took a commuter train to Casa Voyageurs train station, only to learn that the 10:50 train to Marrakech was already sold out. Kim and I braved an immense but good-natured throng of locals and, after some confusion involving a series of baffling problems with the ticket vending machines, were able to buy …

    ... 9pm; the speaker towers blasting prayers in the early hours of the morning preparing everyone for the next day of fasting. While our dinners have sometimes been delayed there have never really been any issues and so it has been a great experience to see such a significant religious practice in action. After a final look around the area we gathered together and walked back to the same bus station we'd been dropped off at two days earlier. The coach trip back to Marrakech was ...

A royal cemetery, the members of royalty buried in beautifully decorated rooms and their important advisors or soldiers in the beautiful gardens outside. Apparently the tombs disappeared from memory until a French pilot snapped some ariel photos and it was rediscovered. After this we visited Bahia ...

    ... as if you've been catapulted into an exotic story book. It's an entertainers paradise. The square is filled with snake charmers, musicians, acrobats, fire jugglers, women offering henna and stalls selling the most beautiful fresh orange juice. If you visit the market in the evening you can also overhear the storytellers and watch the magicians. If you wind through the main bazaar into the souks you will find everything, from leather to carpets, lanterns and more ...
