Juice Joints, Djemaa el-Fna

by tiresomemoi

The same, but different.


There are dozens of juice joints ringing La Place, all selling orange juice for 4 dirhams. Grapefruit and lemon are also available but not once did I see either of these actually sold. It seems impossible that there are enough people buying to keep so many carts in business but clearly there are. I tried three different carts before settling on number 37. The juice carts open around 9:00 and stay open until past my bedtime.

If I were a poet I’d write an ode to these carts.
