On our first day in Marrakech we spoke to our hostel guy about a tour to the Sahara. We signed up and got up at 6.30 the next morning ready to head out there! The pain of the early start was lessened by our awesome breakfast provided by the hostel.
The landscape became more arid and rocky as we headed inland, and we passed over some hills just out of Marrakech which gave some great views. I haven't been in such a harsh or dramatic place in a long time. As much as it's nothing like NZ, the contours were just a little bit, just a teensy bit, and I appreciated the view.
|These were fake baby camels. I have no idea why except 'tourism'?|
|I especially like the way the colours of this town blend into the hills.|
|Ok yes, it's upside down, but look at what the wall is made from!|
|We were just near the 'T' as my beautiful assistant Peter is demonstrating! A little north of Ouarzazate where we stopped for lunch.|
|One of our guides helped me tie my scarf properly.|
I am off to Norway tomorrow to hang out with Eleanor again and our other Kiwi friend Ewan - so that'll be quite a change in climate from this post! See you then!
