๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 1 – Marrakech

Around 0730 public transport was used to get to the airport FKB. First tram, then tram again, then bus. Relatively cumbersome but without problems. The winter had settled now also in Baden and everywhere lay snow and of course it was cold. At check-in my backpack was 8.5 kg. So I could have taken something with me. But I didn’t need any more as it should turn out later. Around 0930 the plane took off for Girona. Cloud cover pierced and already times little sun again after long time see.

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 4 – Essaouria

The morning it had lasted then nevertheless until approx. 0900 until I came from the bed. Did also nothing, since my bus should drive only against 1300 and I did not really know what I should look at now. So I got ready, grabbed my still not quite dry things from the terrace, recharged all my batteries and finally said goodbye to Maschud. I missed the obligatory breakfast at the Jeema this time. I went back north through the medina to the exit where the bus station is.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 5 – Agadir / Inezgane

I woke up around 0900. It was bitterly cold and the wind was still whistling through the holes. The sea was also loud. The set of laundry, which I had washed the evening before, was not dried at all because of the humidity at the sea. I went into the community shower and packed up afterwards my stuff and determined that the Digicam would have hardly longer electricity. With the computer it didn’t look any better. I cursed again on the socket and left the dirty chamber direction sun. I walked again along the city wall through the area that was warned in the planet, again towards the center of the medina and finally again towards the bus station, about 10 min outside the walls of the medina.

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ 2011 Morocco – Day 13 – Boumalne / Ouarzazate

Around 0700 I drove again in the direction of Ourzazate to be there on time 1000. On the right I saw the Atlas with its snow covered peaks far away from the road. Everything which is green here, has its cause in the glacier streams and the melt water after the snow melt. It must be quite large floods, which pour out then in the direction of Sahara. The Draa flows into the Atlantic again after a turn, the rest seeps into the desert. 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 didn’t believe that, but I didn’t feel comfortable with the whole hotel. So I gave it to him and made off.
