Personal highlights

  1. Dades Valley: long and curvy valley cutting deep into the Atlas mountains
  2. Accommodation: finding the right place to sleep is fun, meeting local hosts
  3. Car rental: lending my rented car to the host, to pick up his wife, to make dinner!
  4. Hike the Valley: hiking only a short distance, bouldering and crossing a wild river
  5. Old Kasbah: exploring the ruins of a castle in the hill, surrounded by agriculture
