Eine gute Einführung um Teile der Medina kennenzulernen.

Wir waren zum ersten Mal in Marrakesch. Dank unserem freundlichen local guide haben wir eine gute Übersicht über die unmittelbare Umgebung, eine Orientierung in der Umgebung in der Medina, die nahe unserer Unterkunft war, erhalten. Außerdem viele Infos und Hinweise zum Thema Handeln und Einkaufen, Essen, dem Leben der Menschen vor Ort und auf Nachfrage Infos landeskundlicher Art.
