Great hotel in Erfoud. Very comfortable with pools indoors and outdoors, and designed and furnished in traditional Berber style. Bedrooms are very spacious with a couple of couches to relax on after a hard days camel riding.

We started off at 5.30. Remaining seated on a camel as it stands up is far from easy, even with four Touareg Berbers to assist, but the "joys" of riding camels are explained by countless authors elsewhere on the Net, so suffice it to say that it's not the most comfortable ...

We headed back by camel (ouch) to the auberge, where we had a nice breakfast and said goodbye to everyone else in our caravan. I sat outside with Hassan, Moustafa, and his friends for awhile...they were just really cool to talk to, and it's great to see how continuously enthusiastic they were despite taking groups into the desert pretty much all the time. They broke into another spontaneous music session before we all dispersed.
