By lunch we have arrived in Marrakech. Sophie and Courtney are yet to discover the sites so we head back to the main square for another round. This time we head into a spice store and are shown many different spices and perfumes and made a delicious tea. We all walk away with a few things and I am happy to grab some saffron to take home.

We wandered through Gueliz looking in some of the boutique shops and ended up at Jardin Majorelle. Jardin Majorelle is an oasis of calm and tranquility. This is the garden of Jacques Majorelle and his father, the garden was left in disrepair before being bought by the fashion designer Yves Saint ...
