September 08, 2007, Marrakech - a typical scene of clay fortified wall which can be seen throughout Morocco

September 08, 2007, Marrakech - for the first leg of our journey to the high Atlas we used this battered old Mercedes.

September 08, 2007, Atlas - a mountain view near Imlil. Imlil is the village from which the trail to Djebel Toubkal begins.

September 08, 2007, Atlas

September 09, 2007, Atlas - the trail above Around. We made our first camp on a grassy patch next to an apple grove, which lies just out of the lower left corner of this image.

September 09, 2007, Atlas - most of it is barren stone

September 09, 2007, Atlas - on the trail to the refuge

September 10, 2007,

September 10, 2007, Atlas - a big ascent, probably half an hour before the top.

September 10, 2007, Atlas - a view from the top.

September 10, 2007, Altas - on the way back some clouds appeared, luckily after we had our deserved dose of views.

September 10, 2007, Atlas - titanic rocks left by someone big are scatterd on a hill near Around

September 11, 2007, Somewhere on the way between Marrakech and Tinerhir - a butcher's on the street. Refrigerators are never used.

September 12, 2007, Tinerhir - a very nice hostel we spent to nights in.

September 12, 2007, Todhra gorge

September 12, 2007, Todhra gorge - as it is very narrow climbers can choose their routes to climb in shadow.

September 12, 2007, Todhra gorge - a kid sheparding his herd

September 12, 2007, Todhra gorge

September 12, 2007, Whereever there are tourists there is stuff to be sold to them, fortunately this time noone pressed us to buy anything.

September 12, 2007,

September 12, 2007,

September 12, 2007, Todhra Palmery - the real highlight for me was not the gorge but the palmery below the gorge, running along the river all the way down to Tinerhir.

September 12, 2007, Todhra Palmery - a genuine oasis both natural and spiritual. All life is concentrated in the palmery... beyond it there is little life for hundreds of kilometers.

September 12, 2007, Todhra palmery - nurturing body and soul.

September 12, 2007, Todhra palmery - green foliage on red rock backdrop.

September 12, 2007, Todhra palmery - it is not only palmery of course - there is cabbage, dates, olives and lots more.

September 12, 2007, Todhra palmery - a house right next to the palmery.

September 12, 2007, Selling souveniers to tourists is a craft. It all begins with small talk, come to my house to have some tea, blah-blah, and ends with us buying stuff we do not want to buy.

September 12, 2007,

September 12, 2007, Todhra palmery - inside the house which later tured out to be a souvenier shop.

September 13, 2007, Erg Chebbi - first view of the erg.

September 13, 2007, Erg Chebbi - the 60000 Euro landcruiser that took us to the "auberge cafe restaurant LES HOMMES BLEU". or at least that's the figure the boss gave us.

September 13, 2007, Erg Chebbi - a view toward the erg from the back 'yard' of the auberge.

September 13, 2007,

September 13, 2007, Erg Chebbi - K. of Arabia

September 14, 2007, Erg Chebbi - after spenging a wonderful night under a billion starts in the erg we had to climb a frustratingly high dune nearby.

September 14, 2007, Erg Chebbi - the bivoac we spent the night in the erg. A view high from the dune above.

September 14, 2007, Erg Chebbi - the red sand changes colour in a fantastic way with each change of lighting.

September 14, 2007, Erg Chebbi - this sand is not your ordinary beach sand. It is extremely fine, the slightest wind makes me worry about my camera.

September 14, 2007, Erg Chebbi - morning on the dune
