... at spectacular ksours (fortified village) that once stood on the route of the trans-Saharan caravans as they made their way across the Atlas Mountains to the fondouks of Marrakech. It was well worth it, although the climb was reasonably hard, and it was nearing 40 degrees. It is today still lived in and local crafts are sold from some of the buildings.

... been this cold. While the fire was warm, the icy desert wind blew at my backside. I lasted a half hour before I fled to the warmth of my sleeping bag in the tent. Before leaving for Morocco I was told that it was going to be "cool" and should take a sleeping bag. Originally I thought that "I'm canadian... i can deal with cold" and was considering not bringing a sleeping bag to save precious space in my backpack. Luckily I came ...
