Marrakesh – the red / peach city – where the old town & new one melanges so beautifully like none another. The city absorbs the newness & yet preserving the vibrance of colours , etiquettes , traditions , apparels & not to forget their cuisine – the yumm Tagines ( earthen dish whereby the ingredients are cooked & served in the same pot )!!
Couldn’t stop myself sharing these good pictures of yummy Tagine variety.
Dividing my stay into two in this beautiful city , I did justice to both the new & the old. Also fair to my young kids who enjoyed a mix of an all inclusive resort where the pools & kids shows kept them entertained & the second half in Riad ( traditional local home ) stay in the old town which had charm of its own.
Having pre read on what the city had to offer I wanted my holiday wardrobe to sink in the intricate details & decor , it’s nature & culture. Ditching over my all time favourite & super comfy holiday shorts I chose fabrics with the warm flow , the earthen colours to match the habitat & the prints to camouflage the traditions and accommodate ‘le chaud’ weather.
The resort however being in new town had its modernity & international tourists and hence my take was on the Printed fabrics to go with the ethnicity, at the same time modern enough to go by the pool.
Old town – The main square – Jemma el Fnaa came to me as an experience of its own kind … As the dusk hour sets in, the hustle bustle in the old town effortlessly attracts tourists & locals from all parts of the city .. a sight to please the eyes of all ages! Offering a variety from snake charmers bewitching their cobras to street shows, story tellers, acrobats & entertainers, the place had it all. The sound of traditional drums played by men dressed in the Moroccan attire helps you travel back in time to their deep rooted culture.
Earthen colours was my pallete for my this holiday wardrobe. The oranges & yellows hue to enhance the city’s peach & browns.
Hope you all loved reading about this beautiful city & how I teamed my holiday wardrobe to sync with the culture. I do surely recommend this city for a family holiday as it has lots to offer for all ages. I have added link of places we lived in the city for your reference & planning ..
