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.

... cameras out here cause of sand getting into the lens. We had another great meal laid on. Sooo much food. Too much actually but each different place earns some money from it so that's good.

A low, moaning sound awoke me, like the sound of an old air raid siren just starting to wind up. Gradually it resolved itself into a deep human voice, intoning a repetitive, hypnotic song-chant in the darkness.

There were no other sounds but ...

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 ...
... since I was already starting to feel car sick and wasn't about to sit in the back of a car for several hours after drinking strange dairy products. Next up was a lunch break in a town called Erfoud, where we got to try the famous madfouna, aka Berber calzone, stuffed with veggies for me and lamb for everyone else, and they were delicious!
Then we did some more driving... about a half day's worth... before pulling into our next destination - Ouarzazate.
... enjoying their day of freedom, actually.
Our first stop was the little town of Ifran. This was built by the French, during their occupation, to resemble a French skiing village. It does! But it's gained the name Little Switzerland because of the chalets and the snow capped peaks. Loads of people had made the trek here for the day. We had a short stop for a wander around and a coffee and then got back on the road, long way to ...
