... diet makes them gassy...it's not pleasant, and they make a very strange groaning noise when a 200 lb guys gets on their back. I interperated that camel noise as "Hey fat ass, I don't think so.... By the way...this was Nancy's first ever camping trip! We arrived at our Berber camp and found our tent which was very luxerious compared to our jungle overnight last summer. There was a light and actual beds which were relatively comfortable as far a bed in a tent ...
... for cooking, the nuts having been roasted first, or cold pressed for cosmetic purposes. Julia buys some rose scented hand cream which is very nice. The oil for cooking is very tasty the roasting adding a nutty taste to the oil, lovely to consume by dipping bread into the oil directly.
Then up a massively steep and winding section of road to the highest pass and down the other side to the rocky and dry valleys that take us first to Telouet, then to the ruins ...
... pictures of the hotel and the magnificent scenery, and checking over the car for any damage. It seemed fine, apart from needing water for both the radiator and the screen washers and in desperate need of cleaning. We removed the worst of the mud and cleaned the windows, decided against driving it into the shallow, stony river to clean it properly. It was going to get dirty again very soon!
... else I've met in Morocco, he still speaks at least three languages - our taxi driver came back and they had an exchange in Berber, which he translated back to Spanish for me. He told me to come back and chat with him the next time I visit the Dadès Gorge.

Lovely little budget option with very kind and hospitable owners. The evening meal cooked by Ahmeds wife is delicious. Yes, it is sandwhiched between houses where farm animals are kept but there were fly screens on our windows, it didn't present any problems when we were there. Its very good value for the small room rate but its not a 4/5 star hotel and doesn't advertise itself as such. Its located right on the edge of the beautiful gorge meaning you can enjoy sunset and sunrise - we had the place to ourselves. There is a great roof terrace on top of the hotel for more lovely views. Ahmed will help you get a share taxi or private taxi with no mark up.
