The Madness of Marrakech

Marrakech (or Marrakesh if you prefer) is one of the craziest places I have ever visited. It's not the capital of Morocco but it feels like it is. The bulk of the action in the city happens behind the walls of the ancient medina.

The square inside is called the Djemaa el Fna and it's where these pictures were taken. At night, food stands pop up and you can sit at the benches while people prepare food right there for you. That's why there are so many lights. There are people who play music, perform acrobatics and even snake charm in the center as well.

The lights here are really amazing. It's almost surreal.
