The glorious sand dunes

To experience the dunes it is a must to take a camel trip and stay overnight in a Berber tent. The trip took some 2/3 hours each way and contrary to popular belief it is not as 'painful' as is commonly believed. Granted, you walk a little stiff and bowlegged for a few minutes when you dismount but this soon disappears.

Essential requirements

Two main items, portrayed on the table, are a must in the desert - water and loo paper

Harsh realities

The everyday chores of the Western housewife pales into insignificance with this photograph

    This is one of my favourite parts of Morocco, wish we'd stayed overnight in the desert too, that sounds great.
