When the residents of Marrakesh crave a day away from the city they typically head out to picnic in the Ourika Valley. As with many of our experiences so far, this lush valley defies our preconceptions of Morocco. The valley is green and very fertile. The snow caps of the Atlas Mountains can be seen in the distance and we even passed roads that lead to the ski slopes. We certainly had NO thoughts of Morocco as a ski destination!
We visited a Berber home and were introduced to their tea ceremony, which is more about the conversation than the tea. Although, the tea was delicious and the fresh bread and local olive oil certainly hit the spot. Today is our last day in Marrakesh so we will be heading down to the square shortly. Dad has his eye on some grilled sheep's head at stall 76😄
You Are Always in My Prayers. Love Mom.
