Personal highlights

  1. Skoura: small but important oasis city between the desert and Atlas mountains
  2. Palmeries: fertile area with many palm trees and some agriculture along a riverbed
  3. Picnic: having a short break in the cooling shadow of the palm trees of the palmeries
  4. Guides: no stop without meeting poor locals who want to show or sell something!
  5. Journey: last pitstop after leaving the Atlas area before entering the Sahara desert
