My friend Gina just got back on Saturday from Marrakesh, Morocco where she taught Pilates for a week long retreat. She said it was very hot there but she absolutely loved it! She shared all of her photos with me and now I would love to visit too. There are lots of handcrafts and vibrant colors... I tried to pick out a few photos to show you but it was hard to decide!
A jewelry souk in Marrakech

She took lots of photos of pharmacies for me! She said everything in them was natural and herbal based. I would have loved it!

Lots of vibrant colors!
The hotel where she stayed... they always ate outdoors!

Lanterns (Terrain sells similar ones for hundreds of dollars!)

These are just some of the photos! I feel like I've been there. It seems I live vicariously through many of my friends! ;)
