๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 3 – Marrakech

The Muezin began again quite early with his daily work. But I didn’t care about that around 0600. Around 0730 I got up, after I had noticed how the English girls had gone away. I visited the roof terrace with nearly the same result as the day before, only the Italians were missing. So I took some pita bread and jam, not without consuming plenty of tea and cigarettes. Somehow nobody was awake at this time, although the hostel was quite well occupied. From the alleys I heard again the typical noise of the people, dealers and moped drivers. I went into the bathroom for a shower. This should be one of the few warm showers of the tour. Or at least permanently warm showers.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 6 – Sidi Ifni / Legzira

This time I woke up before sunrise. In the night it had become quite cold and I woke up from the eternal cough of a man, who would not make it much longer judging by the cough. I was content with a meager laundry and went with my stuff one floor down into an already opened cafe. Here I could enjoy again the decent Moroccan coffee which has a decent caffeine content. I was with my winter clothing on the way and nevertheless it was already quite cold. After the coffee I went to a shop and got some flat bread and cheese for the trip to Tiznit and on to Sidi Ifni.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 8 – Tafraoute

That day I got up early again. Meanwhile I had covered 500 km in the country mostly by bus. Today it should go 200 km further into the Anti-Atlas to Tafraoute. I had to bring the moped back before and to clarify the journey, which however could not be clarified actually, but had to happen spontaneously. I took another photo of my terrace in Legzira, showered abundantly with warm water and went to fetch the moped. That stood also still as I had turned it off. I also took a photo of it, because I won’t have the opportunity to be at such a place with a moped again, especially since the picture looks pretty. On the luggage rack you can also see the reserve liter of fuel in the plastic bottle, which I luckily did not have to touch although I always drove full throttle and my empty drink bottle.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 9 – Taroudant

After sunrise, I made up my mind for the day. I grabbed my stuff and went down to pay. The hotel had a cafe on the ground floor. Breakfast was included in the hotel price. That was something completely new. So I sat down on the terrace, which was directly on a corner between the street and the wadi. There was typical coffee, in addition flat bread, jam and butter. I went comfortably on the further journey. I thought about finding a bus or a taxi directly to Taroudant. Meanwhile the sun was warming a bit more. After paying I finally went directly to the place where I got off the day before. Here there were some taxis but no buses. I sat somewhere in the corner and watched the whole thing for a while. Somehow not much happened.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 10 – Ouarzazate

Due to the disturbances of the night I woke up again quite early, made myself clear so far, checked out and went back to the square. I must not forget to mention that in the meantime I had brought a strict order into all my things in order not to forget anything, to get it stolen or to have to search for a long time. So packed I went to the market to drink coffee. Here was somehow still nothing going on. So I sat for a while with coffee and cigarettes and studied the rest of the route.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 11 – Zagora / Mhamid

I got up again around 0800. The night had become quite cold, especially in a room where there was no heating. I hadn’t really expected that. In the quite clear hotel was already quite a lot going on and the noise from inside came to that from outside still in addition. First I checked out again at the old slow Zausel at the reception and went a few meters to the left of the Royal to have the usual breakfast. Strong milky coffee fairy with an omelette. While I sat there comfortably at the street and looked around with cigarettes and coffee in the area I saw opposite a car rental, which brought me on the thought to ask nevertheless times for the prices.
