A Birthday blogette…

I have just returned from the most glorious birthday treat Hammam!

I loved the experience so much; lots of scrubbing with black soap and sloshing of buckets of water over us! Anadi and I had a ‘couples treatment’…

After we were clean and shiny as new pins, we were lead upstairs to our massage… Total heaven! And finally we soaked in a jacuzzi bath in a candle lit room, before relaxing with Moroccan mint tea.

Amazingly we found our way through the narrow cobbled streets, without getting lost this time! – To our home for now, beautiful Riad Saba in Marrakech….

One of the unexpected highlights of my Hammam, was that the manager thought I was Spanish!
I answered “Si’ instead of ‘Yes’, as I am so used to being in Spain….

He spoke to me in Spanish thereafter! And I understood everything and spoke back…!

We also spoke some English too… I said to Anadi that he must think my English very good for a Spanish person… 🙂

I have had such a brilliant birthday…

Anadi and I have been made so welcome by Jamal… We first came to Riad Saba sixteen months ago and it is wonderful to be back…

This morning we ran barefoot through the square in the Medina and found a park, with a football pitch where I did ten laps, striding the lengths and jogging the shorter bits…

As, I write the evening chanting is ringing out all around.

It heralded the start of my birthday at 5am…

A joyous beginning and end to the day.

And now to my birthday dinner….
