We drove all morning through mountainous roads and thru some deep red rock canyons with a stop at the at the city of Tinghir, where we walked thru the back alleys for my first rug sale presentation.

Anyway 2 hours later we arrived at base camp. Our Berber guide was lovely, totally uneducated but through working with tourists had learnt to speak and understand well, English, Italian, Arabic, French and German ( and of course Berber) he walked and we rode in.
