A charming boutique villa that oozed ambience. I felt like Rudyard Kipling in Africa. Our room was furnished in antiquated (dare I say, 'safari' style) furniture. The wardrobe/chest of drawers was a beautifully crafted leather and wooden chest on wheels, the writing desk a portable wooden chest with leather inlaid writing surface and the wooden framed chairs foldable with stretched leather seats. A peaceful central patio/courtyard area fills the villa with light from the glass roofed top that opens during the day allowing the little local sparrows in. View from the top of the villa is great and it is 500m from the Bus station.

... band played alternative versions of classic pop songs, and intricately tattooed acrobats performed jaw-dropping feats of strength and agility against a backdrop of fiery lanterns.
At 1am, we decided to call it a night, and ambled back through the quiet streets to our riad. En route, a delicious scent of barbecue made our stomachs grumble and reminded us of our lack of dinner earlier, and we soon encountered the source of the mouthwatering smell. A small cart was ...
Another long day of driving today through the high Atlas Mountains as we were bound for Essaouira, on the north west coast of Morocco for a couple of days of rest and relaxation. We made a few photo stops along the way and also made a stop where they make Argan oil for both eating and beauty products. This is the only area in Morocco where Argan trees are grown and the place where they make the oil is done completely by ...
... the thought of all of the trees which had once sprung forth from the earth.
You may wonder what a piste is. I certainly did before I met one and presumed that it would be some human who had drunk too many of the beers. One of the very useful books in my library, written by a male human called Chris Scott (Sahara Overland, A Route and Planning Guide), says that piste is the French word for a track. Well we followed ...
... of St. Louis (a further 50 miles from the border crossing) before dark is pretty much impossible.
- Leave for the Senegalese border post of Rosso first thing on Monday and hopefully be in St. Louis mid-afternoon.
All in all, we should spend no more than 48 hours in Mauritania. When we arrive in St. Louis, I expect we'll rest for a few days. Apparently it's quite a beautiful old town.
Before all that high-tension stuff, I have four more days to ...
There is no surf until Saturday and then it is a week of classic swell. Unfortunatly Kim can wait till then, she wants to be out of Morocco and yesterday would not be soon enough. I'm really dissapointed because Imousine was one of the spots I had wanted to score while in Morocco but it it seems it was not meant to be.
Joe and Em were heading north to Essouria today too so we joined them in a bit of a convy. We stopped on route for a coffee and to enjoy the ...
