Congratulations to David and Alison


First Day

Both groups did the Tassa Ouirgane walk on their first day.
 
This is the 21st December group.


 

At the half-way point there was lunch in the orchard, followed by mint tea


 

Also some quick trading by Mohammed


 

This is Tassa Ouirgane village


 

The Kik Plateau

Mubarak led the first group
 
He is Mohammed's brother


 

Mohammed brought his 4-year old son on the second visit.
 
He completed the whole route unaided, apart from refuelling on a bottle of fizzy drink!


 

Isgane

The village nestles in a hollow of the Kik Plateau.


 

Here is the village well.


 

... and here is a villager ploughing with a donkey.

The plateau can be a bleak place.
 
In the background, Mt. Toubkal is just visible.


 

Tea, served in the village of Tadert
