  • Snakes, woman who puts you henna on the hand, orange juice and other small counters, the place is cheerful animation. On the day you should not miss to have a drink in the cafés with overviews, ideal place to make photos without having to give a tip. In the square, each photo costs you 10 dirham. At night, at the time of dinner, the merchants of chorba spread out, the atmosphere is at its height. However the more it goes and the less the Moroccans are kind, they want to sell, they harass you if you are a lonely woman, things have changed well in 10 years. So don't let yourself be intimidated, keep your backpack in front, be discreet when taking pictures.
