Magical Marrakech - Part 3

Saturday's activities are pretty easy to sum up: we spent the day at the souks.  It was the hottest day here yet (45C) and we absolutely boiled all day, but will a little (okay, a lot) of heat keep two girls from their shopping?  I think not:

We also accidentally stumbled upon the Medersa Ben Youssef, previously a religious school, and one of the most stunning buildings in Marrakech:

And after such a busy day, we deserved a nice dinner at a lovely spot - took a taxi (an adventure all by itself, trust me) to the New City and had the most amazing grilled brochettes at Rotisserie de la Paix, which I also highly recommend - not just for the food, but for the gorgeous garden:

And today was a trip to Essaouira, on the coast, but I am far too exhausted to write about it now - tune in tomorrow, though...
