These spices made me sneeze! My allergies got the best of me in Marrakesh. I was either sneezing, coughing, or rubbing my eyes. The souks really are an assault on the senses. Obnoxious, but also hypnotic in a “I can’t look away” sort of way. I’ve never experienced anything like it. The Ladies Market in Hong Kong and the Great Bazaar of Turkey have nothing on the souks of Marrakesh.
