This place is wonderful. The manager, Siham and the owner, Jacqueline, are delightful and attentive, and the riad is beautiful. My wife was on crutches and had to stay behind one day, and they prepared her a lovely lunch at no extra charge. Food tip: there are very few options nearby. Dar Zellij nearby is glitzy and wildly overpriced. The riad will prepare you a lovely meal that is better and somewhat less expensive or, if you feel adventurous, venture up the side street behind the riad where you will find lots of street food. We ate like kings for about $3 per person, and had a great walk through a bustling, untouristy part of the city.

When we started seeing shooting stars, things were getting ridiculous! At the foot of a high dune, we de-camelled and climbed by foot. In the distance we heard the squawks and giggling of a Japanese ...

We also visited Bahia Palace an equally stunning building, built in the ...
... Faux luxury.
The crass commercialism of Marrakech continued out here in the desert lands, with tables set up every which where to sell the same-same products found everywhere. Ancient antiques mass produced yesterday. One view we stopped at, doing our own photo shoot, happily admiring the scenery had two puffing ...
... weird, but this is a common thing in Morocco. It is also something that all the tourists we met were taking advantage of. Sam and I were in getting a bath and massage together, and the entire experience was extremely relaxing. I think the bath part was a little ...
... not spend much more time in there.
The drive from Essaouira was pleasant enough.. it took us about 3 hours at our slow rate, and with coffee and lunch breaks to go about 175 kms. For the most part it was straight, smooth and flat with occasional bottlenecks of donkey carts, motowagons and pedestrian swarms in 3 or 4 towns. The countryside was dry much of the time, almost desert-like, but there were also some verdant patched where oases emerged. Flocks of ...
