Tuesday 5th February
Still at Tafraoute, we're not planning to leave until Thursday so that will be 9 nights in one spot, a record for this trip!
We've been going out on foot and in the motorhome and we've really enjoyed this area. It's especially appealing at the moment as all the almond trees are now in full bloom, different varieties, some white, some pink and different densities of flowers.
We stopped in town on the way back to get new inner tubes for Nigel's bike, however the bike shop was closed so we were forced to go across the road for a doughnut and coffee, would have been rude not to!

On the way back we climbed up out of the gorge and then stopped at the side of the road before the descent into Tafraoute to wait for the sunset.

Today I have been to the souk again just for a look really and a few bits of fruit and vegetables. It was as always fascinating to see and I especially wondered what these local ladies found so appealing.....turned out to be second hand handbags!
