Today I popped off on my bicycleta to see the Jardin Majorelle, a “must see” in Marrakech.
Apparently all the tourists heard the same thing.
The Jardin was begun in 1924 by a French furniture maker who came to Morocco to paint. Yves St Laurent purchased and restored the garden and opened it to the public. The blue color is the gardens signature.
The pots are bright.
There is a small but well done Berber museum which does not allow you to take photographs inside. But here is the outside.
There are a lot of cactussss.
That should be cactiiii.
The blue is alluring and mysterious.
Shadows and blue.
Everything looks great against this blue.
OK, I’ve done the tourist thing and I have a routine worked out here. Time to move on. I’ll start for Essaouira, a world heritage costal town tomorrow. I think my rim will make it.
