Camel trek in the Sahara Desert

A travel blog entry by melanielacava


... I relieved when I saw Valerie walking through the airport in the midst of the Moroccan travelers. Sadly, I had to say goodbye to Selma at the airport, because she was taking her flight back to Paris that day.

Valerie stayed with us in Azrou one night, where I walked her through the Ahadaf, took her to Hotel Panorama for a beer, and went to dinner at one of the infamous chicken places along the main road in Azrou. She was able to meet many of my ...
