The Marrakesh Express

Day four of our Moroccan adventure took us to Marrakesh.  I had the CSN (Crosby, Stills, and Nash) song in my head all day! 

The Marrakesh Express.
“Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express
They’re taking me to Marrakesh”

It was a long day on the bus starting with a beautiful sunrise as we left Fez and headed south towards the Atlas Mountains.  The lush green countryside slowly turned into rocky, dry desert as we got closer to the mountains.

We arrived in Marrakesh mid afternoon and were taken directly to our hotel.  Another beautiful, modern, clean city. Our hotel was also a nice high end building near to a casino.  After checking in and getting settled, we opted for a carriage ride through the city ending in a private dinner with African music and belly dancers!  The food was amazing, again!  A fitting end to a long day of travel on the Marrakesh Express.
