Scenes from Everyday Life/Marrakesh Medina

Some informal pictures of ordinary life in the old town.

Coffee, conversation and watching the world go by.....

 Bringing chickens to market.

 A woman in very traditional dress -- most younger ones are far less covered up.

Sweet pastries in the souk.

 The food stalls as dusk falls over the main square.

A rather alarming and all too common sight --two men up ladders doing important stuff to the electrics.
I'm glad it isn't me.

Waiting to buy the perfect chicken for dinner at the mellah covered market.
