Dreaming of...

Morocco. Marrakesh, really. La Mamounia, to be exact. Why? Because I'd like to rebel against the schedules and the ninth months of school (not my own, my child's) to come. So I'm looking at these...gorgeous images of La Mamounia. I was able to visit Marrakesh and stay in this magnificent hotel with my parents in the late '70s. It's been renovated back to it's original glory, which we experienced back then. We will take Eddie there someday, and tour the country the way I did when I was a child. And we'll purposefully miss school to do it!
I hope you have a beautiful long weekend.

It looks wonderful. The tiles are beautiful and I would love to swim in that pool. Hope you get back there again.

this is a real hotel? oh my gosh. I would LOVE to stay here. I"ve been slightly obsessed with morocco and that area since seeing the movie adaptation of William Burrough's Naked Lunch with Peter Weller. It's CRAZY but I was mesmorized by the setting.
