Marrakech – a walk in the Kasbah

I have enjoyed walking the maze of streets and alleys and markets, avenues and derbs and souks of the Medina (old city) of Marrakech. The activity there is fascinating both as a reflection of the past and an image of the vibrant present. There are souks for jewelry, souks for leather goods, souks for tourists.  The metalworking souk features blacksmiths at their forges and welders with their torches.  One section is filled with hammer heads and pickaxes ready for wood handles.  I am reminded “when your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like nails.”  There are the open air markets with fresh oranges and the fantastic Moroccan breads.  I should bargain more but the prices are reasonable and the vendor chooses the best quality.  Not a blemish on the apples. As a guest, I prefer discretion in exhibiting the world I experience. For this reason, I only used cats as my subject for this post. I hope it gives you a taste of the delights of these walks.
