Loved the buzz, the myriad of colourful silks, leathers, textiles and spices, the donkey laden carts and the variety of goods on offer.
Disliked not being able to examine an item without the incessant attention of the stallholders, we would have bought more if we were given a few minutes peace.
Haggling, initially rather fun, became tedious and we often felt unsure as to whether we were paying way over the top for items.
Consequently, we bought very little.
We were also constantly annoyed by the men who wanted to show us the way, expecting money in return. We are well experienced travellers and walkers that learn routes very quickly.
When exploring the Kasbah, friendly children and teenagers would shout dead end, to direct us. We never felt unsafe, even walking home late at night. Just annoyed by those trying to extract money from us.
Enjoy this sensual feast, it's what makes Marrakech so special.
