It’s entirely possible that I might be in Marrakech this week. No literary musings, no reviews – all I’ve done is work and sleep (badly). But now I have two and a half days to explore this wonderful place. My hotel (riad karmela) is down a tiny alleyway* and from there I can walk through the labyrinth of souks to the central square at Jmaa el Fna. The streetscape is charming and the people are friendly and kind.
Morocco is a 21st century country but Marrakech provides a glimpse into the cities of the past.
*Down several tiny and ever-decreasing alleyways, if the truth be known! The taxi had to drop us 5 minutes from the door and I’m still surprised the driver, after many close shaves, got even that close.
Good grief- what are you doing over there? It looks fascinating!
Work trip – lucky me! It’s an amazing place. I love it.
Wow, what a wonderful experience Michelle! Lovely. Love this post, and the next one. Great photos.
Thanks WG, but it’s very difficult to take a dull photo in Marrakech. Fantastic place – still recovering!
