We are already back from our Morocco trip, but the blog is lagging behind. 3 episodes & first some general impressions
The grand dunes
The last days, once we drank and eat enough, the camels would have some free power to carry us.
Shadows on the grand dune
We left Marrakech and visited the anima garden by Andre Heller (Viennese artist who animates/decorated a whole garden near Marrakech), to finally end in Ait Benhaddou.
