In February 2014, I traveled to Morocco on a school trip for Religious Studies. It was a mesmerising experience that taught me things I will cherish for the rest of my life. We stayed in Marrakech and Casablanca.
Marrakech is a bustling city, rich with character and culture. Stray animals roam the streets whilst locals sell spices which creates an inviting aroma as you walk around. We stayed in a hotel called ‘Les Trois Palmiers’ near the Jamaa El-Fna square, the main marketplace of Marrakech.
To me, Jamaa El-Fna summarises Morocco. In the day the square is lively with snake charmers, orange juice stalls, magicians and beggars. By night the square transforms with storytellers, dancing boys and food stalls.
