marrakesh

we were located about 30km from marrakesh, just close to the atlas mountains, but we decided to get up early and head into marrakesh – all 14 of us, eamonn and tom plus 12 females!  we visited the beautiful jardin majorelle first.  originally landscaped by Jacques Majorelle, the gardens opened in 1947 to the public, but after his death in the 60’s, the gardens were acquired by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge who kept up its existence and enchanting condition.   it truly is a tropical paradise with its water lily ponds, intense blue and exotic plants.
