After a 4 hour flight we arrived in Marrakech, I was still totally over whelmed and not quite believing where I was.
Once we got off the plane and the heat hit me it all began to sink in.
We eventually found our taxi driver who took us to where we were staying.
The taxi ride its self was an adventure, I don’t think they have any rules for driving they just make it up as they go along.
Everywhere looked so busy and so full of wonderful bright colors.
We arrived to a warm welcome at our Riad called Dar Soukaina and was greeted with fresh orange juice and dates.Our room, Girofle was just off the small court yard and was absolutely beautiful .
Once we had settled in we went off to explore, it was amazing so busy and full of life and I loved all the bright rich colors that were everywhere.
We made our way to the Square where we had some lunch , I had a Moroccan Salad that was delicious .
Later that afternoon while sitting in the court yard at Dar Soukaina enjoying a glass of mint tea, I got my next surprise…
Another guest arrived , at first I paid no attention then I realized she was making a fuss about us just having to be English, next she seemed to know our names I looked at Geoff and he just smiled I looked at the tall elegant lady with the beautiful red hair, she looked back at me as if to say “come on sally you know who I am” then all of a sudden I thought Oh my god its has to be Lady macleod .
I was so overcome I could not help but shed a tear or two.
If you read here you will see what happened next……
Lady M, I too feel very lucky to have met you and thank you for making my birthday that extra bit special, its certainly one I shall never ever forget and I am so glad I could share it with someone as nice as you…..
