We arrived in the village of Imlil and found a trekking store - they knew our host Lahcen Ighrem as a fellow trekker and called him. He came down from his smaller village - Arghen - and showed us up to his garage to park our car and hike in the few hundred metres to his home. His father calls prayer five times a day, his mother cooks tagine on an open brazier, and his sister-in-law makes fresh bread for every meal. We were welcomed with tea and accompanying nuts, dates, etc. on the back terrace overlooking the beautiful Imlil valley, then were encouraged to visit Mom and Sis when they prepared dinner. Lahcen acted as host to get us set up for dinner then left us to ourselves until we had finished when he came back to talk about tomorrow's trek. We left early the next morning for 5 hours of moderately goaty trails around the valleys. All wonderful. If you are looking for the genuine Berber homestay, look no further. Lahcen is one of Morocco's young entrepreneurs and his vision is right on!
