I like your photo very much, Marie. Do you shop here yourself? There are so many tents with various items for sale. Do you ever lose your way among the tents?

@Judy: Souks, weekly meetings of the population of neighborhood are the occasion to buy many sorts of things since a sheep or one goat up to a silver jewel or plastic boxes, religious cd, almonds or figs, spices or dish satellite, illegal but (settled) on all the houses! I like walking there and I often return with diverses powders!! But it is necessary to haggle a lot!Thank you Judy !

Another lovely Morrocan photograph - I love it. I do so remember going for a good haggle!! Although my haggling was in Marakesh. I never did go to Casablanca.

Wow.. it's a packed market place. I've to them before, all the shouting and smells and offers to buy. Great shot Marie. I also went to an indoor kasbah.

Great photo. Gives a sense of the chaos underneath the tents controlled by the fences.
