So although I wrote a mega long entry about my trip to Marrakech, I thought I’d summarise my top things to do and list where I ate.
We had booked a private tour through Trip Advisor called 4x4camel tour a week before we headed out to Marrakech.
Aziz picked us up at 9am and we got into his 4×4 jeep. On our way to the Atlas Mountains he told us about Berbers and how they are indigenous people and have three tribes the badouin, nomads and badoua. He was a nomad which means they tend herds and travel 3 times a year. Each tribe lives in a different part of the valley, which are three in total. These people didn’t use to mix but in recent years due to technology and school they are a lot more open minded.
While I was in Morocco, my friend and I decided to go to a local Hammam.
It was difficult to find only because we didn’t see the small sign, and eventually had to ask a local for a “hammam, non spa”.
Men and women have different bathing times, with women having the majority of the day 12-7pm.
We arrived at 11.45 as we had a delayed start due to snow in London.
It took one hour to get through passport control and was not without drama. One man either high or drunk collapsed at least a couple of times, and someone dropped their bottle of duty free whiskey.
