Out of the Jurisdiction: In the Marrakech Souks

Souks are the markets in the old city of Marrakech.

This entrance to the Medina is through the 12th century Bab Agnaou ("Black Gate").

Carts, bicycles and motorbikes race through the narrow alleys of the souks.

I love the pierced brass lanterns.

Olives of every variety are on sale.

There is a huge square with merchants, musicians, and sightseers.

And snake charmers for the gullible.

I find such places both fascinating and a little scary - and that's before I see the snakes!

The brass lanterns make for quite a photo!

A wonderful display of life. Fantastic photos Jack, I could never imagine handling a snake so casually, they terrify me. :)
