The Road to Marrakech
Late afternoon, leaving the farm after a lovely quiet day.
Down a dirt road where the children are coming home from school.
This really doesn't look like Morocco at all.
Mediterranean olive groves, lush fields watered by run-off snow from the Atlas Mountains.
We are some 30 km south of Marrakech, towards the mountains.
Fertile, rustic and quite hard to get to.
The day was overcast rather than the usual blazing sun, rather refreshing.
The clouds played on the low hills making sharp contrasts between light and dark.
One can sit and look at the hills for a long time.
