Retiring to bed jet lagged after returning from a week away in Marrakech and thinking I could catch up on blogging overnight, silly me! Flights were delayed and roads were closed which meant a very late flight and an even later arrival home. However, I do have a few Marrakesh memories and musings to share with you, ahead of my full report . . .
Oh where oh where does the time go? So how was your week?
More Marrakesh Memories Snippets and Musings.
I had a fabulous time in Marrakech!
Did you know Yves St Laurent and his long term partner Pierre Bergere had a holiday home there? I had no idea but after visiting their garden ‘Le Majorelle’ I can see where so much of his inspiration and style came from…look at the colours in these pics from my visit:
On the 19th of October a new Museum was opened to celebrate his life and times in Marrakech, unfortunately we were at home by this time…but I plan on visiting the Paris Museum very soon next year!
The tiredness you get from travelling when older!
I love my sleep but early mornings, late nights, extreme heat and the hustle and bustle of a new country do not make for peaceful bedfellows?
The colours of Marrakech took my breath away!
Pure and simple it was the poverty.
Marrakech is a but a mere three hour flight away from my home and although I have travelled the world many times over, I never ever get used to the poverty endured by so many people on this planet that we share…what more can I say?
