We have travelled down the coast, stopping in Rabat for a night, then on inland to Marrakech, staying in the magnificent Amanjena Hotel a little way outside the medina. There has been a bit of a minor heatwave; as we arrived the temperature shot up from around mid 20’s C to 35 yesterday. Today was 40…but at least it is not humid, just a hot dry heat. Inside the medina in the shade it is lovely but outside it is like an oven.
We walked around the Jewish area, visiting the old synagogue dating back to 1492 when the Jews were thrown out of Spain and arrived in Morocco. Then we wandered around the souks looking for stuff to bargain over. There’s quite a lot of that.
