Morocco Part Uno: The desert (Finally!)


Well...before we start some words to this blog and the last weeks (months)! Yeah when i see the last entry from march, i ask me finding myself in May what happenend? Because Google bought blogger.com and their problems of modulating the blogger.com software to the Google Accounts, it was not possible to upload anything and my blog is a dazzling display of creativity, which means i want to upload pictures. Of course the support staff of Google was so slow cauze many bloggers had these problems! Because of this you lose the good mind of working on a blog...
But now, after weeks (months) i finally can upload pictures and can not wait to tell you about my Africa trip and the great weeks in Portugal/Lisbon.

My first chapter is the desert, our impulse to go to Morocco: One night in this unreal, hostile environment. We wanted to figure out the complete silence, the place on earth were is no live, no light, no sign of human being...and we found.
Well...Of course we did a tourist thing, with a paid guide playing some african drum music, preparing us a fine dinner and telling us things about this place....but we were satisfied, dunes so high that it takes you half an hour to climb them, camels that give you a ride, a sunrise with breathtaking color palette and the damn frostiness in the night!

So here you go: The best pictures of the dunes of Merzouga...More in my flickr pictures on the right side


Only two colors are dominating this environment; Sandy and sky-blue...At night the temperature is around 3/2 degrees, during the day 30/40 depending on the season!




It is so hard to climb these dunes, but it is worthwhile for the view and the fun to jump and trundel down, like i the old days when we were childs...Ahh and if you want to ride one day a camel, buy a good butt protecter. 8km on a camel hurts like hell and you are looking forward to descend from this calm but cruel animal.
