Place Djemma ElFna



Late afternoon:
Lots of dried fruit for sale.



Night:

The biggest barbecue in the world..........



Very Early Morning:

The water truck arrives and washes the square.



Morning:

All that grease and dropped food needs serious scraping..........


Later Morning:

The square begins to fill up with people and trucks and mopeds.
The building in the background is the post office.

Hey Harriet said...

Love the relections of the guys in the washing water in the second from the bottom photo. They look to be doing a wonderful job. EVERY DAY you say? Oh, poor guys!

Love this square even if it's a bit too crowded sometimes...and we actually found out it was ok to eat there at night. So many people had told us to avoid some stalls for hygienic reasons.
Do you go there Elizabeth at times ?

Hope you come back soon to your dear Morocco!
:-)
