I don't do FUN MONDAY today hosted by Lil Mouse because the theme was what happened on my birthday and as I was born in the middle of World War II in Germany, there was nothing but sad things happening and nothing for a funny Monday.
Instead I show you the movie studios of Ouarzazate (Morocco). It is located at an altitude of 1,160 m in the middle of a bare plateau, south of the High Atlas Mountains. To the south of the town is the desert.
At present, it hosts one of the largest movie studios in the world, Atlas Studios. Several historical movies were shot on those studios, including
Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra,
Lawrence of Arabia,
The Man Who Would Be King,
and lately Alexander, Kingdom of Heaven and Babel. It was also the location of the November 26, 2006 episode of the television series The Amazing Race 10.
Our guide told us that when Bratt Pitt was there and heard that in some of the surrounding areas in the desert had no electricity, he payed for it. I thought this was a very generous gesture.
Of course they didn't let me in so I took pictures of what I could
see the Ferrari in the background ?
