A day in the Atlas mountains

By ColleenA
Good morning.....
Thank you for the wonderful response to my Souk images yesterday and a big thank you to
Tony (Canonshots), Maureen (HarrietH),Trevor (TrevBatWCC) and Lynne (Drighlynne) for their UA's ...much appreciated
Todays images are all from a day trip from Marrakesh to the Atlas mountains...what an amazing place...The Berbers are wonderful people.
We also had a great lunch in the most colourful restaurant I have ever been into...see last few versions...it was like being in a jeweled tent....had a real Morrocan Tagine lunch...
V11 is looking down from dizzying heights...how they get down there is a mystery. That house is cut into the hillside.
Have a nice day...we are now in Istanbul...what a wonderful exciting vibrant City

Enjoying this on going tour with all the various aspects shown.
today I like V6 for the scenic image, V8 for the simple receding hills
and the art prize today goes to V2 - was is decoration, a washing line or sales display?
The restaurant is certainly colourful and lunch from the Tagine delicious.
I have one which I use occasionally.

We are spoiled for choice with this extensive set of Atlas Mountain images: this record gives such a good flavour of the area and it's inhabitants.
I am nit even going to try and select a winner, each having merit in it's own way.

A fine selection Colleen, we walked in the Atlas ( it was hot !!) I remember scenes such as these in villages ( we also had lunch with Berbers !! I also couldn't get over the vast amount of rubbish dumped beside the roads ) An interesting country but one we will not return to.

A wonderful set, with great local specific. Sorry you couldn't visit the Saharian side of the Atlas ( they are more strange and spectacular) Have a nice trip in the "city of the cities", the old Constrantinople

Never got up into the Atlas mountains, but did travel on the red open top buses which take you out of and around the city centre! Another super set, Colleen, and those tagines certainly are nice! Tongue
