 The journey continues and we have had the most extraordinary experiences. Mohamed a master calligrapher shared the merest hint of the wealth is Islamic culture and the art of Calligrapgy...great day and then luch at the lovely Ruined Gardens....
 surprise, surprise, snow as we headed over the mountains to Erfoud...really snow- gob smacked would some that one up

 2 hours later over the Middle Atlas and in the Ziz River Valley and sunshine
 carpet flurries

 guests at Mohamed's house with his lovely family....
 Camels on the Sahara---yeh
