Marrakech Market Video

Marrakech Market Video

The following is a video of the market in Marrakech, Morocco at night. Local Muslim women rush to buy just about everything at around 8PM and the way-be-gone tourist is pushed to the side in the crowd. I was very surprised by how relatively genuine Marrakech seemed to be amidst the excessive tourism pull this city has. It was interesting to observe how everyday life really dominates Marrakech in the face of the tourism machine. I do not feel as if many tourist hotspots on this planet can compare with Marrakech in this regard.

The video is below
