As we left Ouarzazate we left the Sahara and headed for the High Atlas mountains. On the outskirts, we passed several film studios - its the film capital of Morocco and films such as Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars have been filmed there.
We called into a woman's cooperative where they processed argan nuts into oil and cosmetics. We tasted the oil, argan honey and an argan, almond and honey paste that was so yummy.
We crossed the High Atlas Mountains via the Tizi N'Tichka pass at about 2200 metres and then drove down via a series of hairpin bends.
We then drove through a beautiful valley with lots of lovely little villages.
We drove over another pass, and then it was on to Marrakech, where we arrived early afternoon.
There was nothing planned for the afternoon, but our guide and driver took us to a silver jewellery store and then a souvenir store than sold everything from clothes to silver to leather and people were able to indulge in some retail therapy.
We get to sleep in an extra 15 mins tomorrow as we have 2 nights here!!!
