SUNDAY 8TH SEPTEMBER
Most of today was taken up with driving. Our only real stop was at Ait Benhaddou, just outside Ouarzazate. Ait is a popular location for movies. It is basically a ruined fortress town situated on a hill. Rumour has it that movies like Lawrence of Arabia and Indiana jones had scenes shot here. The city is made from red mud, with houses seemingly built on top of each other. We walked around the city for an hour or so and were invited into a house. Although most of the town is a crumbling ruin, some parts are still inhabited. Although the house was simple it had magnificent views out over the stream and to the plains beyond.
