Marrakech: Riad Les Jardins de Mouassine

posted by Jamila

About two years ago, I landed in Casablanca. I checked into a hotel to sleep the night before getting on a train for my destination of Marrakech. A cheap hotel. A musty smelling room. A rather unpleasant introduction to Morocco.

But then the train ride. An escape. An inspiring landscape. A short cab ride, followed by a sad lack of dirhams and an apologetic payment in euros. Confusion in the medina (Marrakech's old medieval city, full of intricate passageways). A young man, lowering off a donkey, led the way.

To Riad Les Jardins do Mouassine.

A beautiful view, the riad roof against a bright African sky.



Taking particular pleasure in the bathroom as usual, (with a dash of narcissism):



I was slightly mystified by the bathroom's architecture, shower imitating lantern.



Where are "les jardins", you ask? Why, in the courtyard, of course.
