So the latest leg on my endless itinerary has taken me to Morocco to spend four days with colleagues in the country’s beautiful capital. Though, as is often the case, I didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked exploring the city, I did get to see some amazing things, and snapped a few photos on the way. For your viewing pleasure:
Marrakech was definitely unlike any other place I’ve traveled to so far. The city was always bustling, and people seemed to overflow into the streets. The energy was about as fierce as the selling techniques found in the souk (the largest “traditional” market in Morocco), and the food was as spicy as the colors were bright. My favorite item to consume? Moroccan orange juice. As one who doesn’t typically enjoy my oj pulpy, I can tell you that even with a little texture on my tongue, this stuff was mind-blowing.
We stayed in a riad located in the Medina, and if you ever get a chance to say in Marrakech, definitely check out Riad Les Trois Palmiers. Lodging was incredible, staff was extremely accommodating, and the inside of this building is just as beautiful as the sites you’ll see when you explore this city. And when you go, tell Patrick that Nikki from Paris by way of the US says hello. 🙂
