Marrakech: Lamb Alley

When a friend of mine heard that I was going to Morocco, he sent me this picture (man on the left). He told me to find this man at Mechoui Alley. Luckily we stumbled upon the alley and I showed this picture to the man (on the right) and asked where I can find him. He said, "That is my father." At first, I didn't believe him because I thought he just wanted us to eat at his shop. But he quickly pointed out the stars and the tiles were the same in the background. There was no doubt there and he welcomed us to his delicious slow roasted lamb.

Marrakech: Souks

Wandering around and shopping in the souks was interesting and fun. All the shops were neatly organized and each vendor welcomed you to come inside. "Looking is free" is what they always stated.

They had shoes in every color.

Scarves from floor to ceiling.

I really wished I could have bought more of their ceramics.

And of course, they had a great selection of spices.
