Up on the roof

Today brings our Moroccan sojourn to a close. For our final day in Marrakech, we decided to wander through the medina, and pay a last visit to the main square, Jemaa el-Fna. For color, sights, sounds and oddities, it didn’t disappoint! Here’s a panoramic overview, taken from a cafe balcony.


And a few close-ups as well. Remember, I am three stories above the pavement, hundreds of feet away from the chaos, using a really good telephoto lens to get close to the action.

I think Doylestown needs a few terrace cafes. It is so lovely to rise above the noise and the crowds, and to sit back and enjoy the view. It’s another world up there, and after you sit for a while you are sufficiently re-energized to get back into the fray.
