No, indeed they didn’t.
So with that quote in mind I find myself here in Marrakech Morocco, a place I have wanted to visit for a long time.
I’m here with 60 other like minded people, husbands, wives and friends to experience the magic of Morocco.
The group arrived yesterday and today we formally begin to sight see. I will be teaching two classes this afternoon.
I took these images just across the street from our hotel in the Gueliz. This part of the city was laid out in the twentieth century and shows a fusion of French and Moroccan architecture. There are modern buildings, wide boulevards, traffic circles, upscale hotels. The shopping looks fascinating but I enjoyed watching the street vendors making juice from bright red pomegranates, admiring the bread coated with something unknown and sitting on the pavement and tucking into a delicious meal of kababs cooked in front of you.
The weather is cool and refreshing. Actually as I speak it’s 4 degrees Celsius and despite being 6.38 am, dawn is still 2 hours away. During the day it will be sunny and in the law 20’s so extremely refreshing.
