Morocco: Outside the Cities

We spent 3 nights outside of the cities 2 in tents in different parts of the Sahara desert. It took quite some time in minivans, but it was worth it. Very different landscapes. Especially when we took a local bus from the south to north you could see everything from pure camel walking desert to a hilly, forested place that reminded us of Switzerland.

One of the most famous Kasbahs (القصبة ) in Morocco. These are old fortresses from the Berbers. This particular one is used often in movies like Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven and some episodes of Game of Thrones (Khaleesi !!!!!)

Our camp the first night in the desert. And sand does get everywhere. It’s crazy my camera survived. I felt it looked a bit like Tatooine (spelling check did not recognize Tatooine sad)
