Friday Photo Quiz #114

 

Quiz114

This square at the center of this town’s tourism was in the news a couple of weeks ago for all the wrong reasons. Can you name the square? The city? The country? The answer is after the jump. A good weekend to you from Common Sense and Whiskey and EarthPhotos.com.


And the answer is ……………………………………………………………. this is the Jemaa el-Fna, the central square in Marrakech, Morocco, where an explosion at the Café Argana attributed to a bomb killed some 16 people on 28 April, 2011.

Normally by day the square is filled with snake charmers, touts and salesmen, and, as in the photo below, the occasional boxing match among kids. At night the square converts to a fragrant, delicious, exotic outdoor food market/restaurant.
