... We had a spot of lunch in Djemaa El-Fna and then walked down to the Bahia Palace, getting seriously lost this time - still, all part of the rich tapestry of Marrakech ( plus nowhere is very far from anywhere else inside the Medina walls ).

The lack of a maid means that I'm also responsible for the children's breakfast and lunch ...
