This last week I was honored by a visit from Christina. We had met in Amman where we were both attending the Danish-Arab women bloggers workshop. Christina and I found that although we were from very different worlds, we both had similar curiosity about the world and each other which inspired many conversations. Luckily, the wonderful Danish organizations that funded our workshop also funded the bloggers to spend a week in another city. So Christina and I were able to continue our conversations, this time in Marrakesh.
Coming from sub-zero temperatures in Denmark, Christina appreciated many things in Marrakesh that I take for granted. Birds singing in the morning, smells of lemon trees and the daily appearance of the sun.
We did a little site seeing too. Made more interesting (in my opinion, and I think hers too) by the fact that we took between 1 and 3 of my kids with us wherever we went. The children have a way of bringing a place to life and interacting with it in new and creative ways.
At Jardins Majorelle for example, the boys set up their playmobils in different places. A few people spotted them and promptly took photos of them (the playmobils, not the boys). It was like a happening.
