Thank you Morocco, it was great!

For us, Morocco is a huge, beautyful stone-desert with colors in all facets. The people are very friendly and they often invite us on a gentle manour for a tea. We apreciate the tea and they our little present. Undisputed highligh for us are the dunes of Merzouga, which we had, due to total off-season, mostly only for us (like almost everything in Morocco). What a privilege!
