back to marrakesh


We stopped often on our way back to the city: to admire the landscape, to eat lunch, to explore a kasbah, etc... - notably, Telouet which is crumbling and has a rich history. The detail in every inch of the rooms is astonishing. 

At some point, we saw a goat-herder on the side of the road. There were about 5 or 6 goats peering over a rock and then suddenly we were surrounded by what seemed like hundreds of them. These photos and video seem underwhelming compared to the actual experience. But, it's not every day that you see a massive herd of goats scale the side of a mountain...

We ended our last evening in Marrakesh with dinner at Al Fassia which happens to be owned and operated by women only. I'm going to miss the rose water they put on your hands at the nice restaurants in Morocco - such a lovely way to start a meal. We shared the pigeon pastilla as an appetizer. I know we said that we weren't in a rush to try pigeon again but Amine (our driver/friend) said we had to have one before we left. It was pretty good!
