Marrakesh in pictures

Tane and I have just returned from a fabulous trip to Morocco. Morocco is a stunning destination. While on the surface there are definite similarities to the other Islamic countries we have visited due to the heat, dry landscape and the ever-present Islamic call to prayer, it is without a doubt the most picturesque country I have seen. Marrakesh, where we spent about half of our time, was also a lovely city that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone else that is a little over European city breaks (as we are).

We'll write more about the details of our trip later, but in the meantime I give you Marrakesh in pictures.
