This is the overview of 2 day trip before we reached Sahara, very touristic destination. Going through Atlas mountains you will still see mostly locals, and feel very special. In a purely touristic place I try really hard to stay away from tourists, and can imagine that we must be pretty annoying for the locals who have no gain in people like us, and just a tiring hard job for those who have to serve us.

The carpet shop helper rolling our new baby. To keep a local tradition, we put our carpet right on the wall in our tiny apartment. That's another problem I have: how to organize all the souvenirs we bring from all over. Im almost keep on piling things on top of each other at my home, which makes it pretty difficult to appreciate one piece at a time. My next life I'll have a big house and will dedicate each continent a separate room.

How can we learn about a country, when we spend there only few days, running around tourist places. I think we all need to do our homework before heading off to a new place: read about the history and traditions of a place we are going, read a popular local writer, get to know a few local music bands and to at least know how to say a few phrases. That way your trip will be as though you are coming back.

We ended up succumbing to the carpet sellers. Of course their carpets are the only "real and authentic" in the whole Atlas. But the reality even if you overpay $50-70 for the carpet, do you know how many they sell daily or weekly? Our tour guide Toufik took us to a really small, not very touristic shop, and they told us that about 30-40 families provide the carpets for this shop and make their living.

Traveling is like a my doping. People are addicted to traveling for different reasons, and their destinations can tell you a bit about their character. Unfortunately, the World is not a safe place, and I really don't know when it was or when it will be. But it won't stop me from exploring other peoples cultures and life. 
If you ask me would I go to Paris or London (again) or to a new place in the middle of nowhere , I'll take the nowhere, a big modern city could never teach me what I learnt here.

Would you imagine that you live in a place where the most decent job is to spend the whole day on a farm, and barely making ends meet. Every third year you would face harsh drought, and wonder if you can provide food for your kids. Now, why you were born in a place that gave you a chance to be whoever you want to be? Is there a reason you were born there or pure chance?

Did you know that worrying and anxiety is the coping mechanism of the body that was learnt by our ancestors when they had to run away from the angry lions. That in modern World anxiety doesn't help us anymore, but is wired in our brains. Some of us also mistakenly believe that if we worry more, we either care more or it would motivate us to get the things done. But it's not true. Worrying makes you unmotivating, tired and brings some bad habbits.

Local Hollywood, a mecca of African movies. Morroco is full of wonders all around, and some of the most picturesque clay homes and desert scenes were filmed in this area. Morocco gave birth to some World known celebrities, mostly in sports and film or music industries.

We had a very interesting tour guide Toufik, we definitely trusted him, we had to, and he came highly recommended by our friends. He took us to eat and to sleep wherever he wanted, he knew he could sell us anything, from argan oil to the carpets, showing us the "most authentic" places to buy the goods. He was our driver for 4 days as well. We definitely felt like we were taken advantage of every hour in this country, as it's pretty impossible to find a real price tag of anything, and everything is negotiable.

I remember that feeling being in the car and thinking about different life that people have here and back in New York.
Who is happier?

It was very special couple of days on the road towards the desert. We didn't have any minute to waste, and had to keep on moving to arrive to the camels on time. Many times we were lucky enough to snap a few pictures out of our open car windows.

"Long trip to the dream."
Everyone's dream is to feel as they belong. 
Many loose that feeling when moving from one country to another, but those are also the ones who treasure the humans qualities the most.

Sleeping angel.
It's takes 12 hours on the train to travel from Tangier to Marrakech.
Trains are slow and "vintage". There is no water in the sinks, no a/c. But hot morrocan tea served in the morning. This is as real as it gets :)
