Magic, mesmeresing, marvellous Marrakech

The bright colours of the Majorelle Garden
Magic, mesmerising, marvelous, mysterious. These are words that can be used on Marrakech, Morocco. This city on the way from Europe to Sub Saharan Africa, on the foot of the mighty snow capped Atlas mountains.
Yesterday I returned from a warm Morocco to the cold winter of Norway. The weather defeated the odds as the North African winter may be treacherous, shown to us as we landed at Menara. It was raining cats and dogs and the temperature reached 13 degrees Celsius (55 Fahrenheit) on arrival, but the coming days had highs 20-27 degrees and lows around 10 degrees and sun, sun, and sun.

My third time in Marrakech, but the first for the others, so I saw very little new. Here are stories from my first two visits and those to come from this years vacation in beautiful Morocco.
