Last Sunday morning we went up to Gueliz early, so all these photos are from the French colonial part of Marrakesh.
Gueliz is very different from the medina --obviously much newer -- but the bright clear Moroccan light and the love of color and decoration is very much the same. Here grille, tiles -and yes it is Astroturf!
This is the beer garden -- off limits to most Moroccans who prefer not to drink alcohol
-- but much beloved by the ex-pat community.
Yes, indeed. One is rendered quite speechless by pink and mauve with brown and tan tiles......!
Another abandoned shop quite close by.
Patisserie Marocaine glimpsed through the window. This will have to wait until after lunch.....
