Onward to Marrakech

Climbing into the Mid-Atlas mountains at a height of ~2000 m on a narrow sealed road with lunatic drivers-a bit scary with few guard rails, but specular views.

Along the way we passed a village that the French built when they were in control,  to remind them of France and to escape the heat of summer and do a bit of skiing in Winter. You could have been anywhere in Europe.

We reached our hotel at Bine el Ouidane for our stop for the night below a dam built in 1953. A quiet spot and not a shopping Centre or medina for miles.

Finally we reached Marrakech. Population about 1 million, and they were all out shopping. Our riad was just inside the medina down a few narrow streets and laneways, and it was starting to get a bit warm, low to mid 30’s but the beers were cold.

Tomorrow another day in Marrakech and a flight to Tangier and then catch the ferry to Spain.
