One year is not enough to thoroughly know a city, but is better than a 3-day trip, especially when the destination is exotic Marrakech, where the simplest of things as taking a taxi, or crossing a street can become a nightmare. So, with exactly a year past since we moved from the Red City, I thought it would be nice to share with you those tips on the people, places, and food that stole our hearts.

Today we´ll take off with those hotels, riads, and restaurants that made the cut.

May was such a busy month, that I hardly had time to keep up with the blog. June got better; so here are those remarkable experiences that highlighted these two months.

MAY & JUNE BESTS

Stone fruits, strawberries, cherries and other summer treats appeared on early May, we took advantage of that abundance making jams. Strawberry-rhubarb, apricot-kiwi, nectarine-vanilla and even a Rhum arrangé (fruit infused rum) with nectarines, spices, and kumquats from my tree. :)

Impromptu aperitifs at mythic Cercle de St-Pierre, aka Cercle de (pêcheurs) de Carro, a members-only sort of club that has a legendary fame in Marseille region. We indulged over the best ever fried sardines and ballons de rosé.

Tuna steak, chips, sea & sun at Provençal contre le cancer by Fêtes de Carro team. Also barbec, rosé,  longue games (like Petanque but more complicated) and and sea activities to support the fight against cancer.

June was a complicated moody month for me. During June we finally felt home in our apartment. There are still things to change or improve but we have learned one important thing during all these expat years: to have tons of patience.

June was a bit of a hazy month for me too. Way too hot days and nights that were spent doing the minimum of physical effort. But was also a month of late evenings spent at our terrace with a glass of rosé on hand.

Month after month, they are all just passing by so fast that I feel like I haven´t accomplished much of my goals in any front. That includes this  creative space but sometimes you gotta do what you can with what you have (or something like that). I started this fifth month commuting; as pretty much of this 2014 has been. We went from our temporary “home”; that stunning and magnificient La Mamounia  Palace hotel to our humble but lovely and down to earth apartment which we love.

One more time folding clothes into their tiniest version to hopefully make fit all into a 23 kg suitcase but this time as much as I adore to travel, well, I´m exhausted. You know, I have been literally living in a suitacse for the last 9 months so finally reached my limits. I want a home. Gratefully, we´re in the right direction to that.

Inshallah.

Without a home the idea of a kitchen is just a remote memory.

So, how about to share some news and my March faves?
