Ouarzazarte - Rock the Casbah

There is not much to do and see in Ouzazarte. Yet I took the 8-hour bus from Marrakech to see the casbah and desert that I had heard so much about before. I am totally in love with the desert, the endless view over sandy hills, and the shape of the landscape formed by sun and wind.

While I knew that the clay houses are often being used as film sets, I was not really aware, that there are actual people living in the houses, selling souvenirs and showing visitors around in their living room.

If you have the time for a trip from Marrakech, or on the way to Southern Morocco anyway, I can recommend spending a day in the desert.
