Djemaa el Fna has none of the splendours often found in squares of other major cities around the world, but it is a truly magic place for those of us looking for adventure.

Here you may end up with a monkey on your shoulder or involuntarily get an expensive snapshot with a strangely dressed man with a lamp-shade shaped hat on his head.
And do look out for the Henna women - girls!!!
At Djemaa el Fna you sense that you are most certainly not in Europe anymore.
During nights the square is turned into a gigantic kitchen where you may tuck into a wide range of street food. You may, literally, eat yourself through the flavours of the Moroccan kitchen.
Last time we stayed at a resort outside the city and missed this experience. In January 2011 we'll return and stay in a Riad within the Medina. Then this nighttime culinary adventure will be on the agenda.
