After Pure, we have some time to discover Marrakech and surrounding. Last year we went into the Saharah and this year we go with the hotel La Maison Arabe to see the harvest of the saffron.
It’s early morning and the air in the Ourika Valley is cold and crisp. More than 20 ladies are picking the crocus flowers to discard them later from their deep red stems… It’s a beautiful get-away from the hectic and polluted city. I wish I could spend more time here, wandering around in these gardens with the Atlas Mountains in the background and having some local food made with saffron….
