Got up relatively early (8:30) and caught a ride up to our "friends" (the guy who helped us on the taxi two days ago) hotel. From there we (Marian, Jen, James, James, and I) were joined by two Moroccans (Bazoo and Mohammed) and a French couple(Rudolph & Caroline) and we set off for a hike. The hike was amazing, straight up the side of the gorge and the views!
Two hours of fairly brisk hiking brought us to the destination, a Berber nomad camp. The residents were an older man, three women, two children, and a half dozen baby goats which were very cute, affectionate, and tame. The men were mostly off working with the camel and goat herds. While sitting outside if one of the goats decided it wanted attention it would just climb up on your lap and wait to be petted, really not much different from a cat (except they get eaten when they grow up). We were treated to tea (of course) and we hung out in and outside their cave. While we were there we got to watch them making bread and weaving. It was pretty amazing to realize that people still live like that, and happily too.
A few hours were spent hanging out at the camp, then it was time to head back. We took a side gorge and cut back straight to our hotel (again spectacular), and an hour and a half later we were back at the hotel.
The rest of the day was spent doing laundry (by hand, grrr), relaxing, and trying to motivate.
Our sanctuary has been invaded! A group of about ten French have checked in to our hotel. They've pretty much left our floor alone, but you can hear them, and the knowledge of their presence has taken a lot of the charm away. Tomorrow morning we are definitely on our way.
