We arrived in Marrakesh after a three hour bus ride from Essauoria. Our hotel is just off the main square where all the action takes place. It really comes alive at night with the food market and the smoke from the grills wafting across the massive space. Today I had my photo taken with this snake - it is a water snake and harmless, so the guy told me. The other ones on the ground clearly are not! He told me I should squeeze the snake's head but I refused. Holding it was good enough for me. Anyway I have to go, just wanted to show you all my snake photo!
