Teacher in Refinement
Yves Saint Laurent said that Marrakech taught him colour. As you lose yourself in the narrow, winding streets of this city, you learn of the contrasts, the subtle textures that are interrupted by splashes of colour, and the sunbeams that creep between the lattices and the rooftops. From sun to shade, from busy street to delicious nook. You drink mint tea in the rooftops, away from the life of the city, and then you dive back into the fray.
Heart of the City
With the liberty to explore Marrakech at your leisure, you follow your senses and your instincts. You discover wonderful sights at every corner but, even more, you begin to sense that quality that every city has, but that only a few perceive: flow. Marrakech’s flow is capricious, it is sometimes mellow, sometimes furious. There is no other way to put it: the city is alive. As you find your way to architectural wonders, you are then guided by the smell of spices; as you follow a play of light in a lattice, you discover a peaceful courtyard, a decorated palace, an intricate door. As the sun sets your mood turns festive. The food! The bellydancing! The colour! What a teacher Marrakech is!
A Farewell Thought
Marrakech is lost in the distance, it has blended with the land. From an airplane all things seem pretty much the same. At times, even the distinction between land and sea is difficult to grasp. From afar, Marrakech might appear monochrome and ochre. Like with all things, it is when you look at them up-close, that the wonder of travel is revealed.
