My farewell to the forum here. You have all been very useful and TA was invaluable as ever in planning our trip.

In case anyone is interested, we have done a blog . Bit wordy and lots of pics, done mainly for our records and family , but if you would like to read ... we hope some of it may be helpful to others !

Absolutely loved your blog and the pictures are great. I am so glad you enjoyed your trip and didn't find Marrakech too overwhelming. It just proves once again that a positive attitude and a sense of humour make all the difference when dealing with "hassle" in Morocco.

I think I might copy your "genie on a bottle" photo when I visit Erg Chebbi next month!

Thank you all for nice comments . I sometimes feel blogs like this are like Christmas Round Robin letters and I don't like to impose them on others !

The book Shopping in Marrakech by Susan Simon is showing as available on Amazon.uk. My husband linked to the American site by mistake. I have also seen in it Stanfords in London and in WHSmiths.

I confess I didn't buy one but was give it on loan by Massimo at Riad Les Clos des Arts .

Great book for navigating the souks .

Only drawback was that some of the most highly-acclaimed shops eg Atelier Moro and Kis were closed and opened on appointment only, ie for serious shoppers rather than browsers like myself.

My top favourite shop was Warda La Mouche and I bought clothes for myself and my teenage daughter. Would happily have bought more if I had had the space.
