Vendejo de Goudfazant for coffee, bread, cakes, cool stuff, all kind of homemade products and the best delicacies. The restaurant (Hotel de Goudfazant) has been converted into a super creative supermarket, Vedejo de Goudfazant. The building is large, so it can be completely corona proof.

Sleepover in Amsterdam.
Monday 12th of April
Private 'home gallery' at my friend Ank. I sold 3 lemon paintings to people who happen to live in Amsterdam and came to collect the canvases personally, which made it even more special. One lemon will move to Spain.
Citywalk of 12528 steps with Ank and her dachshund Billie through the city center (I bought some Arabic delicacies at Rue la Bastille) and a long walk in Westerpark.
In the evening I cooked a delicious italian Riso Venere dish for the two of us. And of course we talked a lot about anything and everything...
Tuesday 13th of April
Citywalk of 14925 steps through the Westerpark and Erasmuspark, where we visited The Miracle Garden.
Normally we're together for a longer period of time in Marrakech in April, but this year in Amsterdam.
These two days have flown by. I'll stay one more night, tomorrow a design & vintage inspiration tour in Amsterdam North on the program.

A moroccan memory picture from exactly 3 years ago popped up on my iPhone this morning.
Upon seeing those images, it sometimes feels surreal that it once felt so 'natural' to travel.
Yet I booked my flight to Marrakech for october a few weeks ago.
If all goes well, we will start the Marvelous Marrakech retreat in October, with the group of 13 women that was supposed to come and join us in October last year.
We are positive and keep our fingers crossed, by then everyone will have been vaccinated and traveling will be possible again.
October 2019 I was in Marrakech for the last time and I miss the Red City, the atmosphere, the food and lovely people.
Tomorrow I'm going to stay a few nights at my friend Ank (owner of hotel Chambres d'Amis) in Amsterdam and we will put together a new Marvelous Marrakech program. I am SO looking forward to new adventures!

Le Citron Majorelle, edition 2021.
A new lemon on canvas, is inspired on the lemon in Jardin Majorelle.
The lemon canvas is painted with the original Majorelle blue acrylic paint on a canvas size 80 x 60 centimeters.
If you are interested or want more information, you can send an email to email@example.com or a DM via my instagram account @woodwoolstool.
Normally I visit the spectacular garden in Marrakech on every occasion.
How I miss those annual visits to Yves Saint Laurent's garden in Marrakech.
Below a few editions of the lemon parade since 2012 over the years.
