Day 9 – Todra Gorge, the High Atlas Mountains and Ait Ben Haddou, Morocco

I got up early this morning so I had plenty of time to take photos of Todra Gorge. Unfortunately because it was so early and everyone was asleep it wasn’t the same as yesterday. After breakfast I lugged my backpack down the steps and one of the staff at the hotel took it off me and joked that he can take my place and I can stay here. Today was another big travel day. But we stopped a fair bit to take in the scenery, take photos and have a picnic. I got a packet Oreos for a bargain 7dh (in the shops it’s usually 30dh) thanks to “Moroccan goddess and expert in French” Karina (who all the men are in love with). We looked over the snow capped mountains and down towards the valleys of the high atlas. It was really cold up high so after we had enough we all rushed back into the bus. We ate a picnic lunch on the hillside then kept driving on to Ait Ben Haddou to stay.

Ait Ben Haddou is this really cool town. All the houses are the browny red you’d expect from morocco. We explored through the old town up the hill where game of thrones was filmed. Had a wander throughout the markets then got together for another delicious dinner.
