Chefchaouen - we are amazed by the blue Medina (old town)
it's market day
Tajine - you can eat it all over the country
of course the works are done with a lot of safety features ;-)
night-times the Medina turn violett
we have breakfast in a restaurant and continue ...
... through the Rif-mountains - very green :-))
At lake El Waghda we find a ...
... great place to spend the night
we approach Fez from "behind"
Fez' Medina is huge
there are many fountains in the Medina
Fez is famous for leather ...
.... of course we visit, where the leather is produced
who doesn't get lost in the Medina, was never really there ;-o ...
... we were very much there ;-))
somewhen everyone finds out, also us
in Azrou we make a unwanted break next to the toilets...
... after a few days, we are some kilos lighter but ready for new adventures
we are happy to be part of normal life again :-))
yes, that's where we want to go ;-)
the waterfalls of Ouzoude
Breads are made in the oven or ...
... on a pot
in the restaurants you can choose the peace of meat you like
we continue to the Atlas (high, miiddle and Anti-Atlas)
We stay the night on the Tizi-n-Ilissi-Pass on 2'560m...
... where we see the first dromedaries :-)))
sugar for big-ones
Cathedrale des Roches
we stay the night at "his feet"
Having some fun on the way
the Berbers mark the fields with stones
in the evening it get's nice and cool
the fishes in this lake are thaaat big
we stay the night on the Tizi n'Ouano Pass on 2'915m ...
... in Morocco you're never really alone, not even on this altitude ;-)
Somewhere in the middle Atlas - the rainstorm of the night ...
... makes the further way exciting - parts of the track are washed away
the donkey ...
... meaning of transport Nr. 1
where there is a will, there is a way ... if you drive a Toyota ;-)
it's too nice, we stay 2 nights
drinking tea - a very important ritual in Morocco
slowely and peaceful on the way ...
until a horny donkey spoils the idyllic scene
we flee from the inland-heat to the Atlantic-coast
neat Agadir there are some surf-beaches
further south it's dizzy ...
... and in the evenings (very) cool :-)
as said - a Toyota can ... ;-)
... or not ... with the tide coming in, in sight, we dig quickly ;-) ...
... we get observed curiously
at Plage Blanche the first "real" dunes
also here we stay longer :-))
in company, of course ;-)))
time to heat the oven
on the bottom a bread, on top in the pot potatoes
our first bread is finished - it's delicious!
... again, air out/in
... drinking tea - Whisky of the Sahara
eye in eye
first signs of the Sahara
Market day in Zagora
it's handy to have a Berberdress, with it, Karin is always well dressed "outside"
eating Tajine is a social event
the dunes of the Erg Chebbi from far
Hurrraaaay - the Sahara :-))
Waking up with the sight of the dunes - it hardly get's better
you can find friends everywhere :-))
a sandstorm approaches, we come back tomorrow
... just made it to the car
the next day we get a warm welcome
as mentioned - air in/air out
Karins new love ;-)
Raindrops in the Sahara... signs of the big rain to come ...
... 2 weeks later - thank you Susanne and Martin for the foto
on the way back to Tanger, we visit Chefchaouen again
Tanger - our last stop in Morocco
the Moroccons have a heart for cats
