Sara's birthday trip

James, Jemima, Lauren and John arranged a trip to Morrocco for Sara to Celebrate her 60th birthday.

So in early February we had a long weekend in Africa in the strange and wonderful world of Marrakech. We had a great time exploring the city, the ancient Medina and its squares and souks.

On the second day we headed into the Atlas mountains to experience the Berber way of life.

The third day was spent exploring a little of the art and culture of Marrakech itself with a visit to the Majorelle Gardens and the El Baddii Palace in the Kasbah.

Our accomodation at the Riad Coq Fou was brilliant with authentic suites all hidden away in the back streets of the Medina, we tried lots of the delights to be had in Morrocan restaurants, cafe and bars - all in all a most fitting way to celebrate Sara's birthday.
