WEEKLY WINNERS - An Oasis in Morocco

More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

When we drove through the desert in South Morocco from Zagora to Erfoud, we made a little break and stopped at an Oasis.



these little donkeys are still the best for transportation, because the fields are so narrow and sometimes high, no tractor would ever arrive there. Donkeys find their way everywhere.


Wild (??) camels in the middle of the desert


The Oasis, it gets green




farmers on their fields



women carry these bags on their heads



amazing pottery


and then we arrived in a city again, Erfoud

What fabulous photos, Gattina. The skies are the same blue as we get here. All that greenery in the middle of the desert...fascinating.

Hello Gattina! I'm so glad to have found you. I'm doing Weekly Winners for the first time this week and so I came over from Lotus' blog.

Morocco is one of my dream trips!! Africa is actually - so many places there I'd love to see.

I love the shot of the child behind the mother's skirt. Wonderful!
