Benji Lanyado, the darling columnist of The Guardian's fab Travel Blog has tagged me. My task is to reveal a hidden secret in my very favorite city.........Marrakech. (This blog isn't called My Machu Picchu, after all.)
Now of course Marrakech conjures up images of fortune tellers and snake charmers, but sometimes a bit more subtle Moroccan-ness is called for.....And the way to this girl's heart (besides jewels of course) is........ahem, pottery. (I believe the British call it, crockery. I swear, they really do speak an entirely different language.)
Now if you are pooh-poohing the thought....that is simply because you haven't visited Tatchibana. It's located in Marrakech's very own Kasbah. A tiny little boutique tucked into a most delicious little restaurant. (Do come for dinner, so you can conveniently test drive the dishes before purchase.)
All Moroccan workmanship with sleek Asian flair, in the most charming colors and patterns. Sold only here.........Let me just say, I am saving my pennies (err...pence)......
38 Bab Ksiba, Kasbah, Marrakech

And now for more fun, I am tagging fave Manhattan dweller (and former Marrakech denizen) Elizabeth so we can find out her little New York secret, too. But if you have a city secret that you would like to share, do play along and leave a comment.....
