Morocco: Sightseeing En Route to Erfoud, part 4
Right after lunch, no lollygagging was allowed which was really sad since the hotel was worth inspecting. There was a painting exhibit in the foyer and many of the works are really good. I photographed the one that I really liked. It was a big piece that I didn’t even think about asking for the price.
Back to the road we went and from this point on we saw more orange/yellow/reddish-brown hues than green. Not too long after we got back on the road, one of our tour mates got sick. I think something she ate didn’t agree well with her. We had to stop while the tour manager, the woman's husband and my husband who is a certified EMT assisted her.
Several of my tour mates have been suffering from bad stomach at this point. I don't know what it was that made them sick. I guess some people's constitution are simply weak. Thankfully no matter what we eat outside or inside the country, including street food in India, our stomach seem to fare very well.
Anyhow, once she felt a lot better and was able to continue with the trip, we rode some more. For the rest of the trip, the pretty landscape occupied my time, which is why I never get bored, nor had any intent to sleep.
After all desert-like landscape we arrived at an oasis. We could only photograph it from above.
We asked how the gov't can avoid road closures due to sand blowing into the road. The tour manager showed us the ingenious way they combat sand migration. They use dried palm leaves as barriers for sand going into the road.
We were nearing Erfoud when we passed by towns.
It was near dinner time when we finally arrived at the hotel.
