Winter, stop it! Give me back the Sahara. I miss it so much…
This was Abdou, our Sahara guide from Top Desert. He was so sweet, funny and knowledgeable. Speaks a dozen languages (including some Portuguese he picked up from Brazilian tourists!) and completely trustworthy. I totally recommend Top Desert, by the way. It’s a family company and they know EVERYTHING about Morocco.
This was Ali. He taught me how to ride a camel!
This beautiful lady makes the most amazing tapestry I have ever seen. She offered us black (and very sweet!) tea and talked us through her process. Everything is hand-made and they still use the same tools since the beginning of times!
This was Hashmir, our second guide. He talked to us about life in the desert, about his children and about how much he loves watching the stars up in the desert sky at night. He was an absolute gentleman. I cried when I said goodbye to him. ♥
The most incredible sunset.
And the most beautiful sunrise I have EVER seen.
