As you head along the small twisting roads and alleys of the medina in Marrakech, you experience true sensory overload as motorcycles, bikes and donkey carts dart past you. Souks line the streets selling everything from aromatic spices and beauty potions to elaborately decorated pottery and striking jewelry. Cats wander about unbothered (they know their role) and the smells from the food stalls fill the air. As you pass the giant doors of the riads, it’s fun to imagine the gorgeous gardens and courtyards that lie behind them.
