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.

Then we came villages and farms as the snow began to disappear. This has been a major trade route since the 9th century. As we descended the mountains, we could see an arid plain and the snow capped High Atlas Mountains. We crossed an arid plain where they are now planting ...
... Abdul. The land is very infertile and it wont grow vegetables, only marijuana. So the locals have got good at growing it, but it is still illegal. According to Abdul, 1 gram Hashish is worth 1 month prison for a local, and 1 week for tourist because embassy gets them out.

Sean was still on go slow, I had this massive tagine in front of us to eat, I tried my hardest as I didn't want to offend him, probably ate half! Then it was to bed on the sand in the tent which is really just a space surrounded by Berber rugs! The camp nearby had started playing the morrocan drums which sounded great, so of I drifted under the stars ...
