Having ridden an elephant in Nepal, a pony in Lesotho, a camel in Oman and an ostrich in South Africa and not counting the yak that Mark involuntarily rode (also in Nepal), we finally got to ride a dromedary!

The road from Ouarzazate to Tinehir, about 170 km in an easterly direction is nicknamed the "Valley of 1000 kasbahs" and …

As we traversed the farming lands we were again amazed at the smalls plots of land and the variety of crops, the families hard at work often cutting hay by hand and loading up their donkeys or mules. Through forests and on to an Alpine Ski resort town which was a lovely place to stretch our legs and enjoy a coffee. Continuing on we crossed a plateau where nomadic families were setting up camps and moving their herds. The barren ranges of the High ...

Morning Sand

... is ever the same. There is change and movement and life in everything.
Even giant sandboxes.

I wanted to see the sunrise, but the sky has kept it hidden. A big desert moon kissed my cheeks as I fell asleep under lazy, covered stars last night. Maybe it was too cold for them too.

    A lovely campsite right on the edge of the dunes with very clean sanitary facilities and a great restaurant serving excellent food at a reasonable price. From here, you can ride a dromedary to a camp a couple of hours away. Their desert camp is nestled into the side of a dune so easy to scramble up for the sunset and sunrise. Dinner was fantastic as was the unexpected entertainment with African drums and singing. Definitely recommend.
