Fantastic welcome from Ali who came and searched us after a 6h ride from Ouarzazate with 3 kids aged 8, 7 and 2.5 years old. He offered tea for all of us and showed us our room previously heated for our confort, we agreed on what the program could be the next day which was going out as a family for a day in the desert. We had a lovely supper in front of fireplace and Ali had a chat with us on his family, all his children matched our children's ages. The day in the desert was just great, we kicked off in the morning with an 1H30 ride on the camels and arrived to the tents where Youssef our guide prepared a berber pizza for us. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the freedom and we the silence and calmness only broken by our children's laughs. Youssef was very discreet and kind to all of us including having to tighten the cover in which I tied my little girl to myself when she fall asleep during our walk back.
Came back at the end of the day and watched the sunset from the dunes and walked the final part without our shoes on the sand letting go any tension to the earth. Supper again in front of the fireplace with a windy and chilly night for the desert. :-)
Breakfast next day was better than the day before with more moroccan crepes and figue marmalade.
Off we went after thanking Ali for his hospitality to Azrou.
