Ramadan

We were visiting Marrakech in the middle of Ramadan so things were quieter during the day. 

As the sun set around 8pm, the call to prayer was heard through the city and the people were able to break their fast. 
We ate dinner at a nearby restaurant Limoni where we discovered Chicken Pastilla, finely ground chicken encased in the lightest puff pastry with delicate spices and a dusting of icing sugar. A combination of savoury and sweet flavours which worked surprisingly well. Another dish to try cooking perhaps. 
After dinner we walked to the main square where people were praying, eating, dancing and generally coming to life after the day’s fast. 
After a day of walking we were tired and so after absorbing the ambiance walked home slowly navigating the streets at night until we arrived back at our riad and collapsed into bed. 
An evening in Marrakech.
