Leaving the sahara
Left the Sahara & been on the road again. 

The last few days had us on the road through a series of little towns, all kinds of scenery, a host of riads and casbahs for the night and a lot of uncontrolled laughter in the car. 

Back on the paved road

A paved road, then suddenly there were people around too. And little restaurants and riads (hotels) to crash at. 

My bed in the casbah

My bed and "clean clothes" in the casbah/riad. You know you've been on the road for a while when you have no idea what's in your suitcase and your concept of clean clothes is whatever you weren't wearing before your shower. Wake up, get dressed, have a cup of coffee and get back on the road: more towns, more bends in the road, more coffee stops and more sunsets await.

And somehow, we just don't seem to get tired of it. Or when we do, we turn up the music.

Crashing for the night


Bathroom in the riad



Tonight has us in a riad where we actually have a tub! And really hot water. And fire in the room. The water turned black after each one of us. Luckily, I got to use it first. A little more road to cover tomorrow and now that I am all clean, all I want to do is hit the sack -- so, bye for now.

So it doesn't look like the above has posted [intermittent internet connections here], well here I am again checking in after a good night's sleep. Can't believe what a difference a hot bath made!

Leaving for casablanca

Might be looking like a caveman still, nevertheless this 10-hour unlimited access to hot running water is beyond appreciated! Ready to hit the road -- should be in Casablanca tonight. 

Casablanca en route

This 4WD is starting to feel like a primary residence and I think it's safe to say that we have grown beyond familiar with each others' body-clocks. I can't decide if I like the scenery, the music or the company best, never a dull moment with these two, that's for sure.
