Marrakech Day 2

Today, we took in the sights. First, we saw Palace El Badi, or the remains of it. It was a very peaceful setting.

There are orange groves and a giant pool to irrigate them inside the complex. Storks roost famously on the ramparts.

After that, we saw the Saadin Tombs,

In between, we popped into a little market, where we made friends with a shopkeeper who sells all kinds of olives, green and red Harissa, preserved lemons and lots more. We bought some amazing olives and preserved lemons.

After a quick lunch of fried sardines, lentil soup, bread and olives, we took a taxi to Majorelle gardens, part botanical garden, part Art Deco architecture and part Moroccan aesthetic. It was beautiful.

Then back to the Riad for a siesta

Had dinner at Dar Es Salaam, a restaurant that seems to be inside a very ornate former house. It was gorgeous. We had tagines of chicken and lamb.
