In the Souk.

I flew from Barcelona this morning at 6:30am. I had to get up at 3:40 in the morning to get my flight. I was not impressed. The airport bus was packed. I had to stand up the whole way. The security at Barcelona airport were nasty. But the overall experience was very efficient.

This afternoon I took a walk through the souk, just checking everything out. I did not get hassled at all. I think I must have perfected my 1000 yard stare in India. The sun came out and was streaming through the roof after a cold and miserable morning.

I have no idea what this shop was selling. I asked and it is all Berber wedding jewellery. It was very shiny. I was drawn to it like a Bowerbird.

This stall was selling golden light ornaments. More shiny stuff.

There were quite a few shops in a row selling spices and herbs etc.

This game was very popular. Five dirhams for ten minutes. You have to get the ring around the neck of the cordial bottle. The ring is at the end of a fishing pole. Fascinating. I was mesmerised by it.
