El Badi Palace

Morocco Day 11

One final morning of sightseeing, to see what I'd missed. There wasn't that much left, and I'd got enough time to check-out other sites I'd not planned on seeing before a long walk back to the hotel to collect my bags for the flight home from this Moroccan adventure.

Atlas Mountains Football pitch

Morocco Day 4

The hike from Tizgui to Tiziane was one of the warmest yet, and this combined with the shifting ground underneath, green even though it wasn't grass, made it hard.
