Still Marrakech memories...

The overall colour memory is pinkish, flaky weathered plaster walls.
Warm red rust decor contrasting with brasses and metals. Studded elaborate doors.
Surprising interiors to simple exteriors. Cafe Arabe, a favourite place to eat on the rooftop with welcome cooling water sprays overhead.
The Square where we could co ordinate our routes to and from. Pink and low rise.
The city walls weathered with time, the holes which I thought were battlescars are in fact drilled for scafolding to repair when required.
The Mosque towering above the City. Planning rules do exist, nothing is to be higher than the tower of the Mosque.
Beautiful balconies hang from the buildings.
Cafe Arabes welcoming lanterns.
The palace corridor. White and pure, simple tiled flooring.
Everyday shopping for food deep in he Souk.
Jardin Marjorelles, an Oasis midst the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Thanks. Ooh yes, I hadnt thought of that connection, but now I think about it, my brazilwood samples are that shade, well spotted. Have fun with your dyeing.

  3. Oh, such Lovely photographs. I think Le Jardin Majorelles is a perfect foil for the noise and bustle of the city.
