Marrakesh to Ouarzazate

Feb 15, 2015


Great day. We started in Marrakesh and headed south over the High Atlas Mountains. The weather was a little bleak to start with but it cleared up. Great lunch on Taddert. Most of the group from Caister Grammar tasted their first tagine. Despite shock stories going around, the toilets were fine!

What  an awesome view from the top of the Tizi n Tichka pass. Triple WOW. Visited a women’s cooperative factory producing cosmetics and oils from the Argan tree. No haggling but we got a 20% off deal.

Reached the amazing city of Ouarzazate. This  area was very badly affected by flooding two months ago. The worst for 40 years.

Hotel great. Pool VERY cold. Buffet tasty.

Tomorrow, camping out in the desert.
