Ladies Who Lunch

Shall we all play hooky today
and go for lunch at Dar Cherifa?

I don't mind where we sit...
you choose.

We could go up to the roof terrace
but it is so divinely cool down here.

We can discuss what we are going to buy
in the souks this afternoon:

Berber jewellery, hand dyed scarves,
a leather bag, soft yellow baboush,
a fabulous carpet from the High Atlas

What are you going to eat?
It is all delicious.
Try the chicken and ginger brochettes.

Another mint tea?
I don't mind if I do.
This is more fun than work.

Dip your toes among the rose petals.
Go know you want to...
We will all pretend not to notice.


Thank you for joining us
on our trip to Marrakech.
It has been fun hearing
about your own visits.

Next stop Rome!

    Such a lovely trip. Not someplace that I had ever considered going to visit - but NOW - must put it on the list! :-)


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
