I love this photo, I took it at a stop on our drive through the Atlas Mountains, heading to Marrakech. The funny thing is that this must be the most eco-friendly shop in the world – it has no electricity, sells natural products and the carbon foot-print is probably tiny (unless you count the wind from the goats tied up out the back!).
Joking aside, this is possibly one of the most beautiful places I’ve been – the scenery is breathtaking – and quite a sheer drop as well. And it’s pretty high altitude too.
Looking in the other direction feels like looking towards the land of Oz but this of course was very real and we were excited about arriving in Marrakech itself – the magical and ancient city. I can only imagine how wonderful it must be when it’s covered in the snow in the Winter, but I’m not sure I’d be too happy to do the mountain roads at that time of year.
We didn’t actually buy anything but Miniminx tried on a few crystals…
