Marrakech day excursions
... overloaded drive which had our eyes aching from the exposure to such natural rugged beauty.
Having come down through the mountains we took the opportunity to enjoy the serenity a little longer by stopping for lunch at a lovely cafe by the side of a dry river, with views up to yet another hillside village.
It wasn’t long before we were driving through the walls of the medina and checking into our riad, the delightful La Maison ...
... about 3 hours in Starbucks we continued on to the train station where we hung out in a McDonald’s until our train was ready. (You're probably sensing a theme here but the big international chains never seem to mind how long you hang around in their restaurant for... very handy for travellers.)

TravelPod Member ReviewsRiad Madani Marrakech

Oddly, there are a series of Picassos and Warhols on display, which adds to the allure.
