VISITING MARRAKECH

while i’m in italy, stephanie, one of our amazing DLF contributors, is in marrakech! i thought it would be cool if she reported back here with her cool tips…

“If Marrakech is on your destination list, make sure you drop by the . This cobalt blue oasis was designed by French artist, Jacques Majorelle. When Yves St-Laurent and Pierre Bergé came across this hidden gem, they decided to restore the garden and opened it to the public in 1947. Yves Saint-Laurent actually lived in that blue house and after he died, his ashes were scattered in the Majorelle Garden.

I arrived at the Majorelle garden bright and early, (it gets super crowded) and tried to capture all its beauty for you guys.

The vegetation is incredibly luscious! It’s a crazy mix of giant cacti, so many different succulents and palm trees, lots of tall bamboo plants and large pathways bordered by big colorful planters. Add huge stands of bougainvillea, a large a pond with water-lilies, an amazing blue house with bright yellow accents and there you are, in an exotic Yves Saint-Laurent dream.”

    I studied abroad in Morocco, but never got the chance to visit Marrkech. My professor deemed it “too touristy.” It looks beautiful, though!
