Meknes was founded in the 11th century by the Almoravids, the city was originallyestablished as a strategic military settlement. Featured Books. A retired federal agent, Ann's nephew Jack Branson will not let his aunt's case die; and it is unheard of to Jack that all clues in his aunt's murder start to point to a member of his own family. The suspense was on point. As soon as I paused, set it down, reset my brain and came back to this book, I felt like I could really appreciate it for what it was. Thank you :D Bugs - Glad to provide some cheap entertainment, Bugs.
This morning we will drive south from Marrakesh to Imlil, a quaint rural village in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. We will indulge in a long, decadent lunch on the rooftop terrace. After lunch we have time to explore the property before returning to Marrakech where those who have not yet sated their appetite may wish to venture into the souk, or simply relax in the riad.
This morning we explore the world famous Marjorelle Gardens. These colourful gardens surround the equally colourful villa that was once the private home of painter Jacques Majorelle. Full of cacti, bamboo and other rare and exotic plants, the gardens were lovingly restored by world famous fashion designer Yves St Laurent, whose dying wish was that his ashes be scattered adjacent to the villa, where he passed so much of his leisure time.
The Marjorelle Gardens are one of the most visited sites in all of Marrakech. Here we can select from the incredible display and, once cooked, sit side by side with locals at the wooden tables that line the string of food stalls and enjoy our feast. Prices are fixed, printed on a board and to your own account. Some of the world's finest marquetry is created by hand in Essaouira and we will visit a workshop and watch the artists at work, marveling at the beautiful pieces inlaid with everything from ebony to aluminium and even slivers of camel bone.
