Marrakesh, Morocco

We are traveling with our friends, Clarke and Brenda.  To read their version of this trip click here.

We are meeting up with Audrey and Jim in Palma de Malorca before we embark the cruise ship.  You can read about their adventures in Spain by clicking here.


Dear Family and Friends,

We are winding down our visit to Marrakesh. Morocco has been fun and very educational.  I am so glad we came here. I can only speak for me, but I think we are all ready to get back to a familiar culture.

 Here are some pictures I took in Marrakesh.  Enjoy!

Getting ready for another day.



Acrobats entertaining for money (sound familiar?)




A high end hotel in the modern part of Marrakesh.


We found Clyde the camel.


Antiques....

Colorful spices.



If you click on this 20 second video, turn up your volume.  The purpose is to give you a little flavor of the main plaza.  The tin horn sounds are the snake charmers playing for the cobras.  The drums, if you can hear them, remind me of the scene in King Kong when the natives are offering a sacrifice to Kong. (Faye Ray)




Except for Clarke, we have all had varying degrees of Moroccan revenge the last couple of days. We will be glad to get back to the land of drinkable tap water. 

Tomorrow we fly back to Madrid.  Time to start thinking about cruising.

Love,
Nancy
