Week 7 ? So where did week 6 disappear to? I think an apology may be due to you and Laurie, because I missed week 6 of our linkup.
No excuses allowed! I simply ‘wimped out’ after returning from a week away in Marrakech and thinking I could catch up overnight duh!
It was not to be…flights were delayed and roads were closed which meant a very late flight and an even later arrival home…
Oh where oh where does the time go? So how was your week?
Week 7 My week last week:
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?
Featured posts from week 6
Onto brighter news, I had a little peep at last week’s linkup and decided on these two posts to feature:
