14 April 2012
My 2012 appointment book from American Express devotes the whole of April to the celebration of Marrakesh as a wonderful vacation spot, where you can spend American Express traveller's checks enjoyably.
I've learned the following from perusing these pages:
1. The Majorelle Garden, a "treasured Marrakesh haven," was created in the 1920s by Jacques Majorelle back in the 1920s. Majorelle included a "bright blue studio" on these grounds, see above -- that structure is nowadays a museum of Islamic art.
2. A traditional public bathhouse, known as a "hammam" offers a scrub-and-massage, which our friends at Amex recommend as "sure cure for souk fatigue."
3. UNESCO made the Merrakesh medina a World Heritage site in 1985.
That'll do for couch-bound tourism for today, eh?
Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
