Marrakech

What you've read and heard about Marrakech is true. It's all true. Yes it is that crazy and Jamaa el Fna is the greatest thing on earth. But here is something you wont read about anywhere else.

On the corner of Rue Dabachi and Derb El Hejra, in the heart of the medina just a few hundred meters from Jamaa, is the hardest working man in all of Morocco. His name is Said, and he produces the best fruit smoothies I have ever tasted. Ask for the mix, it only cost 5 dirham for a mug, and it will blow your mind.

You won't really find many tourist hanging out on this busy street corner. Instead you will see mainly locals crowding around his stall, gossiping and people watching as they sip on their smoothies. Many locals come by yelling his name, coins in hand, waiting for a cup of his colorful concoction. He pauses and acknowledges them as he pours each flavor in one at a time. The mad rush begins when all mugs are poured and passes them out. Be quick to grab one of he didn't see you.

Marakesh medina is truly an amazing place and provides endless amounts of fun. Its the tourist trap I have been waiting for and enjoyed it to the fullest.  It is a photographers dream and germophobes nightmare. But if you do one thing, go get a mix fruit smoothie from this place. Thank me later.

 heaven.
