Marrakesh - Jemaa El Fna

Okay - I have written about the Jemaa El Fna before, but there is more to say and show.  It is the heart of Marrakesh and the world crosses through it.  Innumerable languages; cacophony of drums, flutes, and bells; jumbled traffic of cars, pedestrians, motorcycles, bicycles, donkey carts, trucks, horses, and carriages.  Smoke and fire from food stalls selling temptingly roasted chicken and french fries.  Clearly, my favorite place.
Yep - that's us at the edge of Jemaa El Fna
People, people, people headed towards the Jemaa El Fna
