Arriving in Marrakesh: A personal view

There is a buzz about Marrakech that has always made me love this great city.¬† From the moment I emerge from the airport to be greeted by Hassan, our taxi driver, to being driven down to Rue Dar El Bacha near Mouassine, and its great antique and jewelry shops, to slowly walking towards our house in Sidi Abdel Aziz, I just have a great sense of excitement.¬† Walking through the streets with occasional nods of recognition, passing Dar Donab, the new Spa, and walking past the small shops with no supermarket in sight.¬† The hussle and bustle, moped hazard at times, the walnut caskets, the awful paintings on display everywhere and online food at every corner.¬† And then I turn into our derb, and I start to feel at home. A nook and cranny everywhere, I look and see and sometimes stare.¬† And then I’m home, my room awaits, the pool looks fresh, just totally idyllic.¬† The wine has been¬†chilled, and I start to chill out, listening to old CDs, supping wine and feeling at home.¬† I just love Marrakech.
