More Marrakech

Local Sunday Flea Market
Surrounded by the walls of the old Marrakech medina, you never know what you’ll see. My daughter was looking for a specific blanket, but in true flea market fashion, never located it and saw other treasures instead. We stumbled across these vintage camel reins that have such amazing tactile qualities. It's one of those finds that don't quite make it into the shop because I've fallen in love with them too much. They now hang above my bed as a headboard of sorts.

Maison de la Photographie
46 Rue Ahel Fes | Medina, Marrakech
Although off the beaten path it was well worth the hunt! It is an oasis in the madness of the Souks. The food was lovely and the views from the roof terrace are spectacular. It's got a fantastic collection of exquisite black and white images images from 1870-1950 of Morocco.


Moroccan Street Food – The Jemaa El-Fna Night Market
Favorite food experiences were at the Night Market where we went from place to place eating almost live snails popping out of shells, spicy sausages...you name it! Take your time walking up and down the aisles – scope out the energy, food and customers at each stall before you dive in. The video above gives a pretty good peak into the sights and sounds of the night market.

Yves Saint Laurent – Jardin Majorelle Marrakech
A bit of serenity just a short walk from the medina, the Berber exhibition inside is a truly excellent montage. Outside and across the premises, rich, deep cobalt blues highlight the landscape and draws you in.
