Hiking out in the Atlas Mountians and nearly dieing trying to climb to the top of the waterfalls while being practically thrown up the rocks by our local guide, we stopped for a glorious traditional Berber lunch of chicken and lemon tagine followed by oranges coated in cinammon. Visiting the 4 valleys of Asni, Ourika, Oukaimeden and Sidi Fares (which we could barely see, as covered in fog) and Takerkoust Lake, this was a very pleasant way to spend a few days.

Topped off with a  day in Marrakech touring the palace, mosques, royal tombs, Menara gardens, main square complete with snake charmers by the dozen, and a long trek through the sights and sounds of the souks..and another healthy portion of chicken tagine. Next stop Lake Maggiore...
