Prepare to be overwhelmed with colors, scents, and "friendly" offers of everything from fine carpets to hashish. Marrakech is awesome. Some of the vendors can be quite aggressive, so stand your ground and *never* buy something for the first price you're quoted. Negotiation is part of the culture, so don't feel weird about it. Enjoy the process and remember, to get the best price, you need to willing to walk away from the deal.
