Tafroute could well be our favourite place in Morocco, the scenery is simply stunning, red rocks, weird rock formations. The town itself is really laid back, a really cool vibe, zero hassle.
We stop for lunch at a typical Moroccan restaurant, pretty good and cheap
The scenery has been made weirder still by some Belgium guy who painted a load of rocks blue sometime in the 1980's. I guess some people would call this environmental terrorism but to me it looks cool.
We find a wild camping spot and as usual Marie cooks up a storm, but best of all is the sun set. We get a bit sneary about sun sets, laughing at the tourists running around with their iPads taking hundreds of photos. We see so many stunning sun sets on the Llyn Peninsular, but wow, this is like nothing I've ever seen before. And the cloud formations☺
We head back in to Tafroute for breakfast, through some really tight village tracks. It's times like this that my lust for an overland truck disappears. There would be zero chance of getting through these places in anything much bigger than the Sprinter.
Breakfast, great coffee and wifi and we're off. As we get back to the van a very happy local starts talking to us. It's as if we're long lost friends. To begin with I'm a little suspicious, he's saying "it's Omar, it's Omar, from camping Granite". He's the guy in the Citroen van who over took us yesterday. It's good to meet people like Omar, puts you in a good mood for the rest of the day☺☺
