Marrakech’s Central Square After Dark

Marrakech is a city in Morocco. It's known as the “red city” due to its rose-tinted buildings, Marrakech is alive with activity. For centuries it was a central market place for Berber tribes and today its 11th-century medina and central square (the Djemma el Fna) are bustling with lively markets, snake charmers, and even fire eaters. This photo depicts this incredible active market right after dark.
