Sunny, warm Marrakech

Arrived in Marrakech late yesterday afternoon and am very happy to be here. This should be fun.

Didn’t “take the train from Casablanca going south,” but a plane from Fes headed in the same direction. So I find myself with weather 10 or more degrees warmer than the last few days, and a far more modern city than either Chefchaouen of Fes, and nicer than Tanger.

View from my room, dusk, at Meridien N’Fis. Five nights. Gotta love hotel loyalty points.

What’s particularly nice is that, for the first time in a week, I’m in one place for the next five night. Stayed over last night at Riad Noos Noos, an absolutely amazing guest house in the medina area of Marrakech. Guesthouse. More like a small mansion. With a restaurant. And an actual in house hammam.

I’ll spare you my happy babbling at scoring such a wonderful lodging at a really affordable price, but tomorrow I will post about my experience with my first ever hammam, a traditional Moroccan full body scrub that exfoliates your entire skin surface and opens up all your pores.

Followed by a massage. Was an amazing experience. I floated out of the place.

More tomorrow. Been taking it easy today. I miss Chicago and numerous people, but not the weather.

Stay warm.
