Wishful Wednesday: Marrakesh
I’ve been following the blog My Marrakesh for over a year, as Maryam decorated and developed her boutique hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco. The hotel is finally open and now I am dreaming of visiting Morrocco. First I would go to Marrakesh, and stay here, at the Peacock Pavillions. Stay at Peacock Pavilions.

I would love to go shopping in the Medina.

I would eat this Morroccan food, whatever it is. I would spend a day visiting the Royal Mansour and then roaming the Gardens Majorelle. . . Then maybe meet a friend to check out the latest exhibit at the Maison de la Photographie . Maybe switch hotels for a night to swim in the beautiful pool at the Villa Rose Sultan Hotel . . .
And the New York Times “T Magazine” Style had an article on Marrakesh. Best kept secret: I got a tip from a friend that the best experience is to drive from Marrakesh, through the mountains to the desert . . . romantic!!
