I AM STILL ALIVE

After having spent 5 days in the desert without Internet connection I am finally in Marrakech where I found one in the hotel we are staying for 3 days to rest from our trip.

I can only say it is an absolute beautiful country. I can't say anything about the big cities because we only drove through the very south, through the desert and red rocky mountains with sometimes a green spot when some water managed to stay. The time stood still here. People are still living like 2000 years ago. In the last 15 years there was some improvement, electicity arrived even in Erfoud which is a little town in the middle of the desert.

As soon as I am back home I will write more about my trip of course and show you the beautiful landscapes I have seen.

The camel which took me through the desert to watch a sunset was so happy that when I sat beside him he rolled around on his back like a big cat !

Here you see only a little of the beautiful landscapes I have seen. This was in the Atlas mountains.

Wow, what a dramatic landscape. Glad the camel was happy. They're usually quite grumpy and complain all the time and they have a nasty habit of spitting if they're seriously annoyed.
