... awaits. As there is a road blocked off we have to transfer our bags to an old man (he was at least 80) who wheelbarrows them along. He did get rather cheeky asking for a lot of money at the end. At least he didn't keel over - I'd feel terrible. We head out for dinner on a rooftop over Marrakech ahead of our departure the following day.
What would be the point, you say, in going to Morocco and buying spices without whipping up a feast in ...
After two nights in Zagora, we started our way back northwest and ended up again in the seeming middle of nowhere. Our accomodations, the Kasbah Air Ben Damietta, was a wonderful place, run by a French woman; so the cuisine de haute was French - steak!
We also stopped at the Atlas Movie Studio outside of, here comes that name again, Ouarzazate. Lawrence of Arabia, Cleopatra, and Patton, among other, were filmed, at least in part, here.

Far from traditional, there were five dancers performing Moroccan tease burlesque, fun but hardly cultural.
Tomorrow we are heading off for more Moroccan adventures.
