Moroccan bed and bath inspiration

The newly refurbished Hotel La Mamounia in Marrakech offers sublime inspiration for a modern take on traditional Moroccan design. French designer Jacques Garcia spent three years restoring the nearly 90-year-old hotel to its former glory while updating it with 21st-century conveniences. Accommodations range from a "standard" room to a 7500 square foot riad.

Dear Allah in heaven, these are breeathtaking. La Mamounia has long been on my life list. I was scheduled to go with my true love 30 years ago, reservations made, passports in hand, but just days before we were to leave, he fell ill....and it never happened.

These pictures make me think maybe it's time.

OMG! My verification word is too cool---'trango', and sensual South American dance for cross dressers?

Im dying to go to Morroco. Can we organize a blogger trip there? I dont think I could go with my hub, he would hold me back from all my swooning and shopping.
