Well, it wasn’t exactly shopping like Carrie and the ladies in Sex and the City 2 but a full day was spent in the Marrakech souks. To say there was sensory overload is putting it mildly as it was a full-on convergence of sights, sounds, smells all at warp speed.
The famous mint tea leaves for sale… I’d have to admit the tea was pretty darn good…rivals iced tea in Texas.
Various foodstuffs for sale: snail, turtles, oranges, olives, fish, and spices.
The alleys were winding, snaking through back alleys and narrow pathways, sometimes no more that one person deep. Part of the fun was the wandering about rather than the end destination.
Donkeys are the main transportation vehicle in the souks.
Shopping buddies, literally!
