Sunday 14th May
Off towards Todra Gorge, even hotter, between 36 & 40°, when we stopped for coffee, the Lady's aircon obviously switched off, the heat enveloped us completely, every movement was an effort. But we arrived at Camp Badou at Tinerhir by lunch, plugged in the electric, so soon getting a more reasonable temp of 30° ish. Got to the campsite's lovely pool asap. Once evening came the temp dropped to just hot, and we all sat outside at a large table and were served a lovely meal by the owner of the campsite.
Bed early again, the heat is SO shattering.
Monday morning, and Ray arranged a taxi to take us to the Gorge itself.
The driver took us to the parking area at the top and we walked down thru the narrow, high cliff surrounded road by the shallow river taking lots of pictures, especially of the climbers risking life and limb for some reason only known to themselves. Had a refreshing orange juice in the only cafe before getting back in the taxi to the campsite. Afternoon by the pool again trying to keep cool. Rescued a gorgeous butterfly which crash landed in the pool. Saw and heard rock buntings. Nice clean pool,fab-u-lous.
I'd got up extra early that morning to make a Victoria sponge before the sun made it hard work, as Hammed said he'd love to try it. So at 4pm we all had a cuppie and a slice of cake; Afternoon Tea in Todra Gorge, Morocco.
6ish, the G&Ts appeared, followed by the bbq at 8pm at ours, everyone contributed again. Lovely evening again, all of us getting on really well together.
No chance of following ANY type of diet when living like this!
