๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 12 – Zagora / Merzouga

As you can see from the first picture I was on my way quite early. Above Zagora there was still fog and it was not very warm. Actually it was just before 0 degrees. The night in the hotel was not particularly great, since my room had somehow again gaps and it pulled and besides no heating was there. I had already thought about buying at least one fan heater for 10โ‚ฌ, but that really wasn’t worth it, because most of the rooms didn’t have electricity and I had to get rid of the thing again.

Before I could drive off, a guy from the shop under the hotel 20dh coaxed me out of his car on the grounds that he had been looking after the car all night.

I slept well that day. I packed up my things, checked out at the slow old Zausel again and went towards the bus station. Meanwhile it had become again already at noon. The bus journey to M. should take about 5-6h. The distance was only about 200 km long, but the slow bus and the serpentines over the Atlas made the journey quite long. But this way was much better than the southern one I came from Taroudant before.
