Marrakesh 2014

We spent spring break in Morocco this year. The weather was slightly on the cool side but gorgeous. It smelled like orange blossoms everywhere. It ¬†was a joy being outside! It was John’s first trip there so I have done a lot of walking and monument touring with him. We did the ubiquitous horse and carriage ride, toured the medina, threaded our way through narrow souks, and visited old mosques and palaces in ruins.

It was fun doing the tourist thing. I even got us lost a couple of times in true tourist fashion, and had to ask for directions to places I had been to dozens of times. We took a lot of photos and videos. I have looked at them everyday since our return. I hope you enjoy them too.

Happy weekend!

    Awww…memories! I loved the excitement of Marrakesh, it was loudest city we visited, course it was June so it was peak tourist season, but it was a great experience.
    What is the dish above the desserts? eggplant?

      It’s an assortment of cooked salads. One of them is eggplant.

    I just noticed the spices piled up on top of the metal containers in the shapes of cones. TOO COOL!
