Marrakech was busy, with plenty of pushy sales people, food stands everywhere and exotic animals in odd places. We had some bad luck with our food and restaurant choices there, which clouds our whole Marrakech experience a bit. Especially since we are people that plan their trips around food. Don't get me wrong, it is such a special city and definitely worth a visit. I guess it was just a typical case of expectations being too high. One of my favourite spots though, was le jardin, a beautiful cafe in the heart of town with the dreamiest and most relaxing garden. I could have played with the turtles all day.
