It was not a pleasant drive, it was drizzling and the roads were very busy and narrow. We stopped on the way in a lay by for a brew and a sandwich. Whilst we are not naive and knew we were coming to a developing country, we are both shocked and somewhat disappointed by the amount of litter everywhere. One of the things we love about France is the sense of civic pride evident almost everywhere. We are hoping that when we get up to the hills and into the dunes this will improve. Either that or we will just have to become accustomed to it. 🙁
Thismorning, Steve and Hamid treated us all to a berber style breakfast which was delicious, scrambled eggs with salmon and fresh bread. Then Nigel and I walked down into town again but this time we got lost and ended up too far down.
It was market day, all manner of produce was on offer from nice looking fruit and vegetables and herbs to things we had never seen before and could not name.

Eventually we found our way back to the square from where we could get a taxi back up to the campsite but not before I got taken in by a guy who guessed we were lost and said he would guide us to the square. “Don’t worry, I don’t want to sell you anything,” he said. Surprise surprise, we ended up in his carpet weaving shop.
We did indeed get a taxi both ways as it was almost dark by the time we were leaving and having got lost in the daylight we’d have stood no chance in the dark!
