Morocco: journey into the desert (part i)

To reach the sands of the Sahara = their ambition.

So in a rickety van they entered the Atlas Mountains early in the morning.



There were many roads to choose.... or.... just one that curved every which way as it snaked around the mountainsides.



Around noon they paused to visit a small casbah, one that supposedly served as the location for a scene in the film Gladiator. But there were no movie stars there on this particular day...



A donkey ride led them across the river...



So they could stalk the interior of the small medieval city, old as stone.



Back on their journey, they watched the landscape change, from barren and windswept...
