Flag of Morocco  , Marrakech,
Monday, September 17, 2012

Got our visa for Mauritania and made a mad dash to Marrakech, 40 degrees rising through the labeikyne region. Found a brilliant camping spot about 7km from Marrakech which will make a welcome quite night sleep. Haha camping sounds like roughing it! It's a bit more glamping, permanent tents, hot shower, swimming pool, bar and wifi, not exactly a tough life!

At the camp site we met up with another biker, Darius Groza. He is a copywriter from Transylvania in Romania who's only just learned to ride and bike and since sourcing a sponsored has decided to ride through Africa. Nice guy with strong opinions but who is keen for company so we've agreed for him to join us through the Sahara and Mauritania.

After a swim and a few beers we headed into Marrakech to see the market. It's absolutely insane! Thousands of people, hundreds of moppeds riding at 100miles and everyone trying to sell you something or be your "mon ami"...

More food updates...after a brief power struggles (3 in the group demands a shift in leadership, haha more on this later!) we agree on a place to eat, i actually ate brains tonight...

The foods was superb and as usually we walked away with satisfied bellies but safe in the knowledge we had paid over the top again!

The market takes on a bit of a sinister personality later on so we decide to head back to camp. Might or might not be available tomorrow
