Morocco Day 3

October 28, 2013

We woke to a stormy looking day, but still warm and dry.4 boys slept through their alarm, but we were still ready to go by the set time of 8.30. We were delayed a little today by an upset stomach, but passed through the valley of roses along the road of a Thousand Kasbahs to arrive at the magnificent Todra Gorge for lunch.

Along the way we passed the largest silver mine, and a solar farm that will provide 25% of Morocco’s energy (NB they have no oil). Having been travelling through a mostly barren arid landscape for a couple of hours, the question came “when do we get to the desert?” A moment to remember that only a fraction of desert, even of the Sahara is dune.
Staying in a Kasbah tonight – turban tying competition to amuse ourselves and to prepare for the Saharan sandstorm tomorrow. No WiFi in the desert so you will have to wait for next instalment.
