Adventure News: Anita and team reach Marrakesh. Time to unwind!
Current location: a pretty campsite in Marrakesh
Anita, 5:30pm: “This journey has been one of amazing contrasts. Mountain scenery changes with every twist and turn…from snow capped peaks, turquoise reservoirs to trickling mountain streams, peasant farmers living in homes carved into mountains made of mud baked blocks, farmland terraces with crops being sewn as we speak. Local people are charming and weather beaten from the harsh life in the mountains. There have been landslides since the scooters went through 3 weeks ago which have changed landscape in parts. Now at campsite in Marrakesh; getting used to communal living, 4 to a tent tonight, very pretty camp site. Just off for a swim before we head into Marrakesh for entertainment, food and a little local shopping. Ian sorting out engine problems at the moment (he overcomes them every time). Diesel now a hefty 70 p/litre, big increase from 35 p in the Sahara! Could you pick me up on M4 next Tuesday PM? x x x”
