Refreshed from a good nights sleep we have a city tour of the exotic city of Marrakesh today also known as the "City of Ochre". The most obvious landmark is the 12th c Koutoubia Mosque. We visit the Bahia Palace and the richly decorated tombs of the Saadi Dynasty.

We did a bit of shopping and a little more exploring of this popular Djemaa el Fna Square, an on-going bizarre of entertainment, food and everything else!

Time to head back to our hotel to get ready for a horse-drawn carriage ride, a wonderful dinner at the Lotus Restaurant and traditional entertainment!
