Woke up early and drove to Mohammed in the Blue Well where he had made us breakfast. Then a short drive to Merzouga where we met Bernhard and Wioleta and took a long tour in the sand dunes, where we also spent the night under the milky-way. Actually, I took the opportunity to ask Eveli […]
Yesterday we finished the last of the six schools! In six days! Thanks to a great team! Now vacation starts. Today we made it almost all the way to Merzouga. We stopped in Midelt for lunch (both for us and the car), where we also purchased some nice Moroccan carpets. Now at camp for the […]
All good things come to an end (except the sausage which comes to two. Ends…). After a nice sleep in (we didn’t have to go to Ifrane in the morning) we arrived at the last school. At the entrance a large number of donkeys were tied to trees. We jokingly said “this looks like a […]
Up to the café. We stocked up with some nice meat from the butcher, some fresh bread from tbe boulanger, some fresh locally produced vegetables, and off we went to yet another school. This teacher was very interested in taking the equipment to his house instead, but we explained that this was not the purpose […]
Waking up to the fantastic view was a great start. After watching a group of wild berber monkeys, we headed to Ifrane for the regular morning meeting and coffee. Then off to “our” school. Our because this was the one where Eveli and I would give all the gifts we had brought from friends and […]
Up in the morning, café au lait, and off to the school. With the help of some Spanish people Bernhard hooked up with at the camp site last night, we found a great camp site with a marvellous view.
pro We started off with driving into Ifrane and meeting the rest of the team at a wonderful little café. We met Tim Harman, the project manager and our great leader, and Jérôme Chestnot, co project manager and translator (since he speaks very good French…). The previous evening we had gotten to know Michael Beltrami, […]
This must have been the longest day on the whole trip. We arrived in Tangiers Med around midnight. Getting off the ferry was a very chaotic experience and took more than an hour. Once out we thought all would be easy, but oooo no. First we apparently had forgotten to get a stamp on the […]
Two days of relaxation while cruising the Mediterranean via Barcelona to Tangiers Med in Morocco. The food was so-so, but we had our cabin to go back to at least. We spent lots of time there planning, reading, and even watching some TV.
We got up so early that we couldn’t even leave the camping. The (not super friendly) lady owning the camping finally got up and let us out. We passed lots of tunnels and were slightly misled by the GPS app Copilot GPS before finding a really nice, deserted, winding, narrow and cozy road from Piacenta […]
