    We were three friends in our tweenties travelling and we loved it. Our guide Hamid was the very best, and so kind. He took us safe and well through the Atlas mountains. We stayed in two different gesthouse on the trip, We had the best time. We changed between walking on a track and the road. The mule carried all the food and we got hot meals for lunch and dinner, and a lot of warm tee.
    Since we travelled in january, it wasn’t that hot, but when the sun shined it warmed. Bring warm clothes for the evening. Remember to wear sunscreen if you easily get burned.
