In Morocco, Paradise for us, Hell for the British
Published by MartinVarsavsky.net in General with No Comments
We are at Bab Ourika, Google it, arguably one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. For us it’s paradise.
We flew in from Madrid yesterday. There is no ash cloud in Spain. But as we sat down for lunch we found that the 20 or so guests who are in this hotel speak as if they were in prison. They shout from table to table, coming up with alternative plans to escape paradise. A train to Tangier, a boat from Bilbao. They frequently curse the British government for leaving them stranded.
Nina and I intervene, offering a return flight in our plane that is coming to bring our children for my birthday celebration this weekend. They kiss our hands. We feel sorry. Paradise turned on them.

That’s been very generous of you. I’m sure they’ll always remember the gesture.

Bab Ourika … my god, amazing views and the rooms – especially bath – looks fantastic. like a “wise” place…maybe something for a 50ths birthday where the look inside is the challenge. so much taste, lucky you!
p.s. no pool 😉 ?

Hoy en día es muy difícil encontrar gente generosa, sin esperar nada a cambio, por suerte todavía existe. Mucha suerte Martin.
Como se dice en Portugues – BEM HAJA

The truth is that I hardly ever follow people’s blogs, yet sometimes go back to have a look at some blogs I know because they deal with subjects that interest me. There is one blog, however, that I do follow nearly on a daily basis: this one both in English and Spanish. You have just provided (once again, I must say) the reason why: you keep surprising (me, at least) with the things you tell your readers you do.
You have given other examples in the past. I am sure there will be more in the future.
