Shopper's Paradise

We spent more money than we have on any previous trip, including having to buy an extra suitcase for all our souvenirs.




 We went to a number of markets in Fez, Marrakesh, Erfoud and others. There were narrow alleyways that would then open up to courtyards, or stalls filled with goods. Without a guide we certainly would have gotten lost. Every conceivable product was available, particularly if we were living in the last century.

I spent quite a lot of time with a blacksmith in Marrakesh who is making locks, and is a fourth generation smith in the same stall that his great grandfather used all his life. His son is following his father in the same trade.
