ouarzazate and aguelmous

| 0 comments

as we got to #ouarzazate – the #gateway to the #sahara #desert and also #morocco’s #hollywood – hicham surprised us with a visit to his #parents’ #house. his mom made us #tea with #zafran and offered us some #zemeta made with #barley #fennel #honey #walnuts #sesame seeds and #almonds mixed together with #butter

it was such a pleasure to partake of moroccan #hospitality in a lovely home full of #warmth and grace

after chitchatting for a couple of hours we continued our drive:

-#ait #benhaddou #ksar or fortified #village along the former #caravan route between the sahara and #marrakech – the community areas of the ksar include a mosque, a public square, grain threshing areas, a loft at the top of the village, a caravanserai, two cemeteries (#muslim and #jewish) and the sanctuary of saint sidi ali

-#agadir where we bought some #gardenia infused #argan #oil for my daughter’s hair
also loved the #peanutbutter-like mixture of argan oil (toasted almond scent) honey and almond paste – yum!

-the most beautiful #painterly #colors i have ever seen in a landscape in #aguelmous
