We arrived in Marrakech, another Bucket List achieved, and immediately began wandering the souks, which turned out to be an amazing experience. Whatever you read you do not need a guide to take you around the souks, yes you may get lost, but you will be so absorbed with the every day life that you wont realise that you are lost. Have a landandmark, whether it is the Koutoubia Mosque or one of the well known restaurants in Jemn el fna and when the time comes to head home and you are unsure of the way, just ask a local how to get to your reference point.
A wide angle lens is essential if you want to capture the Moroccan life in the souks as the lanes are very narrow.
