Marokko IV: Sahara

Ajelimme pohjoiseen kohti Essaouiraa, mutta 170 km matka rähjäisellä vuokra-autolla arvelutti sen verran, että käännyimme takaisin. Etäisyydet Marokossa ovat niin pitkiä, että seikkailuun kannattaa varata kolme viikkoa. - We thought about driving to Essaouira but a hundred miles with a crummy rental car was just too risky. Distances in Morocco are so long that you need at least three weeks to explore the country.

 Turkoosi meri - Turquoise sea



 Hipit matkalla - Travelling hippies



 Argan-puita. joiden öljyä tuodaan Suomeenkin. - Argan trees which produce argan oil.





 Dyynit jossain rannikolla. - Dunes somewhere along the way.

Dyynien juurella oli syvä rotko. Mies hyppäsi yli, minä kiersin kaukaa... - On the rim of the dunes there was a deep ravine. My boyfriend just jumped over, I took the detour...

Rotko jatkui merelle asti. Ansa varomattomille turisteille. - The ravine went all the way to the sea. Tourist trap for real.

Ihan kuin Saharassa olisi ollut, hiekka tunki silmiin ja kameraan. - A bit of Sahara feeling, sand was everywhere. meaning my eyes and camera.

    1. Kiitos ja samoin! Marokkoa on kyllä ikävä, ainakin Marrakech ja Casablanca pitää vielä nähdä.

    1. Hello! First I thought this was spam but then I realized you're a real person. Great work you're doing and I hope to be able to volunteer some day in projects like this. My aunt was a missionary in Nepal and I really respect her for that.
