Travel Blogs from Ouarzazate
... Ait-Ben-Haddou, 20 kilometres away, is a world renowned kasbah (traditional Berber camp site), a must-do for Morocco. But what I didn't expect was how spectacular the journey itself was going to be.
Ouarzazate is a long five hour bus ride from Marrakesh. It takes another 45 minute grand taxi ride to get to Ait Ben-Haddou. I dozed off for the first hour or so in the bus, till I was woken up by the continuous twists and turns the bus started to make. We were ...
... interesting fact. By law, any new building in Agdz must be an ochre colour, the colour of the earth here. In fact, every town in Morocco has just one colour - Essaouira is white, Chefchaouen is blue, Marrakesh is red and so on.

Jeremy in fun and happiness is one thing, Jeremy in the grumps is most unpleasant and not my idea of a holiday. ...
... I hope to find a secure garage later but the owner says he needs to sleep first. I have even agreed to eat here tonight, so this might be the last you here from me for a while..
At least this town has decent Total petrol and a second cashpoint – I did find one but it was broken and I had to stand over a dead dog to operate it – well it smelt dead.
No wifi here, and of course I did notice a ...
