... and afternoon huddling up in a tiny corner of our room which was slightly cooler thanks to shoddy air conditioning, but discovered that we were still sweating in that corner. Later we took a 10min walk in the mid day sun, which felt more arduous than a 5km run. Worth mentioning that it's Ramadan now, and all of morocco shuts down in the late morning till the evening. Basically everyone is on siesta because they can't eat or drink water and are wilting in the heat. Walking ...

... As we hit the town, a guy dressed in the indigo blue Tuareg colours stood in the middle of the road and forced us to a stop....just to sell us a desert trip on a dromedary....unbelievable. Mark had wound the window down to see what he wanted and he was gripping the window and giving us the full "sell job". We had been on the road for six hours....it was the last thing we wanted but we couldn't get rid of him....he wouldn't let go! I ...

... with the lush green oasis’. From there we entered the desert, just in time for sunset. The hotel for the first night in the desert was at the base of the sand dunes, so of course i began this night by sitting on the dunes drinking red wine. After dinner we decided to go on an adventure so we went to visit Medhis friend Hassan/Google. Google decided to take us 4WDing in the dunes which was quite the experience in the dead of the night! We made our way to the ...

... crystal clear, star filled sky. Falling asleep in silence with shooting stars by the dozens to watch. Better than drugs.

Assif woke us up early to climb the dunes to watch the sunrise. Not as spectacular as the sunset but still amazing.



A small sand fish was the only wild life I saw, in the 2 days in the desert. Many dead scarab beetles. One would have thought ...

Berber village and camel rides at sunset

... shown how they make their rugs. It was very interesting. She was making the thread for the rug, she had a ball of wool, or something and put it between what looked like two really big cat brushes, and brushed them over and over until it was perfect and then she spun it on a spindle. She did it with such ease, made it look easy. I'm sure it's not. It can take anywhere from 6 months to a year to complete a traditional berber carper (the big ones), the smaller ones ...

    A Camp in the Desert

    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.
