If there was ever anything that was a bit unbelievable or unexpected Ali would simply conclude with "Africa" and a shrug of the shoulders! We drove through the Higher Atlas Mountains, stopped for lunch at Ouzatte, after our tagine (!) we had a wander through the Kasbah, a small town made entirely of mud huts! There is still ...
