The Beduoin Campsite is a 90 minute camel ride from the main hotel
For a camp it is clean and comfortable
There is a toilet and a washbasin, but no water!
Good dinner and breakfast
Absolute quiet, and the stars are like spotlights in the clear sky
Berber music and songs are the entertainment
The best part is the ride to and from the camp
The main hotel has showers, swimming pool, restaurant, etc.

We arrived at the Kasbah around 530pm, dropped our bags, grabbed the overnight essentials including plenty of water and it was then time to jump on board our camels and head into the dunes. The ride in took a little over an hour, including a sand storm about 10mins from camp which made things interesting. We arrived at our campsite and jumped off our camel companions. It was then time to enjoy the peace of the desert and take in our ...

Anyway we survived the night and no terrorists from Algeria galloped in and kidnapped us for ransom or ...
... on our journey. Lansari got a call that the road we were stuck on had been closed just after us. If we hadn't gotten over that hill we would have had to travel back to Fez and been delayed. Timing is everything! Back on the main road and on our way to complete our journey through a 6,000 foot mountain pass heading to the vast Sahara Desert where we will spend two days in a tented camp. Of course we will be out of wifi and all communication for at least 3 ...
... ourselves joined by Jonathon, another traveler in our group, in a steamy room with two washer women who proceeded to give each of us a 30 minute bath in full view of one another. I had the pleasure of having both women work on me at once with some combination of brillo and SOS pads. I hadn’t been scrubbed so thoroughly since Grandma Tzippy babysat me when I was six years old. Luckily, no one brought a camera into the hammam, but enjoy the rest of the ...
... doing that whole, it's terrible, we both know but we won't make a thing of it. I look over to Jed as I'm just pushing my bones around trying to find the meat and he's polishing off his last mouthful. Later in the car he tells me how great the Lunch was. "Are you being sarcastic? Did we eat at different restaurants?" "No, it really was great, the meat was so tender and no fat" "Right, so I just got all the fat!" "I'm glad I know now and not then, I wouldn't have wanted to share it!" ...
