Whilst in Marrakesh

marrakesh marrakech, morocco

ACCESS TO AFRICA

This would be my first time going to a country in Africa and thought Marrakesh was a great idea as Morocco is known for its beautiful and intricate details. I had visited the city for the first time and am surprised that there are 3 sides to Marrakesh: old, new and night. The city comes alive at night.

Melting in the 40 degrees C heat yet relaxing in the beautiful sunshine, there was a lot to see and do. I didn't have enough time to do everything but I did see everything I wanted and even climbed up a high mountain and waterfall. I want to visit again to do the other activities such as venturing into the Sahara Desert. I did learn lots, about the history, culture, argan oil, weaving techniques, spices etc. Even though I slathered myself with suncream, I did tan a little bit which is noticeable and am quite liking the shade I've got.

I got compared to Jennifer Lopez too. I was walking through the Souks and heard a guy at one of the stalls say to the another "She's like Jennifer Lopez" as I walked past, wearing no makeup, a hat and sunglasses on. I had just burst out laughing.

I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

Of course, Morocco is known for argan oil and spices. The spices aren't included in the picture below but I did end up buying some as well as some natural argan oil, mint green tea leaves (not pictured) as well as the clay lip tint. I am so excited to try this argan oil and it is naturally produced and not full of chemicals like the ones in the UK. I have seen how it was made whilst on a tour. Cannot wait to try it.
