As you may know, I made a trip to Marrakech during the Easter weekend. Together with three awesome friends I discovered this impressive place full of contradictions. I'm so glad I had this experience! There was so much to see & so much to do... We had such a great time on this trip! We stayed at the lovely riad Dar73 with an amazing roof terrace (on the third picture you can see our view).
On the first day we payed a visit to the famous Jardin Marjorelle. This beautiful garden was created by the French artist Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s and 1930s and took him 40 years of dedication. The special shade of bold cobalt blue which he used extensively in the garden is named after him, Majorelle Blue. In 2010, the Fondation Pierre Berge - Yves Saint Laurent accepted the Jardin Majorelle as a part of its heritage.
I've never seen such large cacti in my life! Definitely worth a visit if you get the chance.
