Jardin Marjorelle, Marrakech
I went to Marakech in August – that was a bit nuts! As it was super super hot. We new it would be but we’re tough, we thought we could handle it! Actually it wasn’t that bad, I am exaggerating. Marrakech is a pretty exciting city, its buzzy and the mix of the old and the new is just something else. I could of wandered around those alleyways trying to guess what was behind all this massive wooden doors for hours (at one point whilst trying the find the Maison de la Photographie, I did wander round for house, I kind of foot myself stuck in an loop of the same 3 or 4 streets and I just couldn’t get out, much to the amusement of another friend of mine who went about a month later, stayed in the same Riad and found the museum first try!) Enough about that though, I wanted to show you these photos that I took in the Jardin Marjorelle in Marrakech. These gardens were a little shady oasis in the middle of the city, they were originally landscaped in 1924 by Jaques Majorelle and more recently have been restored by Yves Saint Laurant. If you ever happen to find yourself in Marrakech, go visit.
