Morocco part 2

Here you can find Morocco day one

So I am back from Morocco quite some time and I must admit it made an impression on me. Not as much as different culture but I needed something exciting, something that gets me moving and start thinking. It did not last long, but it is what it is. Shortly I’ll describe other days since they mostly ran out of my head. Whoops.

We went and saw the museum of Marrakech.

And we drank a lot of Coca-Cola, I admit. The museum is quite small but charming. It starts with a room holding some portraits of their king(s) with some important political and cultural people. After that you get into large yard with few fountains (and it is covered up). Around it there are some rooms with gifts like dishes and gold. The nicest part are the ornaments on all architectural elements. Not far away there is Medersa Ben Youssef which is like a theological college. It was however. Now is a museum. And it is quite something. I only regret the pool in the middle of the yard was empty.

That was the most of touristy sightseeing we’ve done. The other days we were wandering the souks and losing ourselves in streets of Marrakech. And shopping. Berber pharmacies are a magical place for me. Everything smells and it is colourful and overwhelming. In a good way I must admit.

On the way to the new part of the Marrakech we walked around Cyber park where they have some computers and wifi and some nice plants but it was mostly just greenery since we were there in February.

The most impressive building I’ve seen was ( I know this will sound a bit crazy) a railway station!

I didn’t take any pictures of hotel’s roof terrace but I have one of floor ground terrace. It was lovely there. Really lovely.

The last day was a bit sad. We checked out and went last minute buying ( I bought myself a bag since the one I took with me was falling apart a bit) and just cruised around for a little bit.

We went to same place as first day with great view of Jema al Fnaa and ate last meal which was some sort of chicken kebab and it was great!

Thank you Marrakech you were good to me

Morocco day one

Hello, people. Sorry for not writing much lately ( don’t act like you missed me) but I was kinda busy with life and everything so I was a little less present at the computer screen. So I have something exciting for you today. Well, it was exciting for me, you are just gonna read about it.

As the title suggested I am in Morocco, to be exact in Marrakech. It is my first holiday after quite some years ( last year London was only half holiday since I’ve been working on my computer quite few hours every day so it was never able to relax. This time I am doing it a bit differently. No itinerary, no plans. And boy that feels good.

Milano is like an expensive lover you know it does no good to your wallet

I started my route in Ljubljana, went to Milano and flew to Marrakech. The flight was full and the only thing that happened there  were some problems since one of the passengers passed out during the flight. But he was ok when we landed.

So I managed to get myself a SIM card with data plan and we ( me and my travel companion, let’s name her simply M) went to the centre of the city, checked in the hotel and visited the cutest roof terrace I’ve ever seen.

We roamed the souk ( yes, muggle or whatever can a pretentious I’ve-been-here-for-a-day person could call you, google it as I did a week ago) and streets of Medina for about three hours. My sore feet are not happy that happened but it did. As we got to our starting point we decided to get a Coke ( their Coke is less sweet and just delicious, stop judging me!) on a roof terrace overlooking the Djema El Fnaa, main square.

We went and ate some couscous which can measure up to mine, have to agree, and we went to the shopping mall which was the most bizare thing in a while. It was all christmasy when it came to decoration, some penguins, santas hut and so on. And a palm tree behind it. Won’t say I understand it. There I might have gone a bit overboard with makeup shopping at Flomar but I was treating myself a bit for my upcoming birthday.

We got back, ate something on the terrace and watched the sunset, chilled in our room and now I hardly wait to go to sleep.

Need to ask something before tho… Does anyone have any idea what is up with Morrocans and their love for cheese spread? And I should really learn french.
