Rabat – After celebrating Christmas in southern France with family, former French president Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife French singer and first lady Carla Bruni decided to celebrate New Year’s in Marrakech.After arriving in Morocco, Bruni posted a picture of a glowing Marrakech sky at sunset on her Instagram page.“A city of colors and perfumes, an infinite palm grove with blond dunes, and the evening, on the horizon, the eternal snows of the Atlas …. Each time [I feel] the same happiness to be in Marrakech,” Bruni wrote on December 27. The holiday seems to be a relaxed one for the couple to the point that Sarkozy decided to grow a beard. It inspired his wife of 11 years to express her love for him.“I love you with a little beard,” Bruni wrote on her Instagram, captioning a black and white photo of Sarkozy with a light beard as he basked in the sunshine. Accustomed to visiting Marrakech, the French couple, along with their daughter Giulia, also visited the red city in April 2017.Read also: World Celebrities Spending New Year’s Eve in Marrakech: Who’s on the List?Other celebrities will also be ringing in the new year in Marrakech, including American actor Owen Wilson, Moroccan singer RedOne, Real Madrid’s Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas, and Congolese-French rapper Maitre Gims.
