Morocco, Western Sahara and Mauratania

We had almost four weeks in Morocco, the Western Sahara and Mauratania, so here is a rundown on some of the highlights.

Best scenery
Toudra and Dades Gorges are sensational. So are Ait Ben Haddou and the High Atlas Mountains. In the Dades Gorge, we drove through some rushing water. The water was sort of sandbagged to keep it off the road, but we plowed through anyway.
Essaouira is a lovely beach town – all blue and white. The desert of Mauratania is breathtakingly desolate.
