Feel very embarrassed and pathetic to ask but I am absolutely petrified of snakes and I'm due to go to Marrakech in a few weeks. I hadn't realised they are so common in the square and I'm really not looking forward to my holiday now because I'm so scared of having one thrust in my face or even the wooden ones would freak me out! I want to see Marrakech properly but also want to be able to relax and not worry about Snakes for 4 days. If I walk around the edge of the square, will I definitely avoid them or is it tricky to stay away from them if you're walking around? Are there shopping areas free of snakes?? Thanks very much in advance.
