straight from the airport to the countryside
Sunday 6th of November
After an ultra short night due to a very early flight, i was picked up at the airport in Marrakech by my friend Ank (& Billie), to drive straight to the countryside.
Heading to Berberlodge to escape the madhouse in Marrakech and slowly start our week together. Staying in a shady oasis on the city's outskirts was a perfect start.
We had a super delicious lunch in the garden, green in the broadest sense of the word and then enjoyed our after lunch dip in the swimming pool surrounded by old olive trees.
We stayed until sunset, because the Berberlodge you just don't want to leave.
Already after a while we can see the lights of the city twinkling in the distance and a little later the city walls of the medina emerge and we are driving in the middle of the traffic chaos.
With the help of our friendly baggage porter Hicham, right through the hustle and bustle across the Djemaa el Fna square, into the souk to Chambres Demi (Ank's riad around the corner of Chambres d'Amis).
We end the day with a harira soup at Cafe des Epices, where we are the only ones left close to closing time.
It's good to be back in Morocco.
