Photographer's Note

The main square in the medina of Marrakesh, Djemaa el Fna is busy with lot of things going on all day.
Musicians, dancers, story-tellers, snake charmers, water sellers in their colourful costumes. It is a fun place to walk around any time of day, but night time is much more lively and a wonderful place to try out the local food from different stalls. I started out with refreshing fresh squeezed orange juice, best is to ask for no ice, you get 100 percent juice and less water down, and if you like snail, it would served as a good appetizer. Every stalls will want to pull you in to eat at their palce. I looked to see where the most local people eat, and I ate there and it was a wonderful meal, very tasty and cheap.

This shot was taken just after the sun went down on a stormy afternoon with thunder and lighting. In order to get a shot like this, you have to pay for a couple of drink to go up on one of the balcony of a restaurant. I was here just a few weeks after the bombing on one of the restuarant in the square, so there is a little concern, but I guess wouldn't be here if I was worry all the time.
