East of me are the Atlas mountains beckoning me, inviting me to come discover its treasures. But first I've got to finish exploring the Valley of the Shadow of Death... Morocco’s hot, dusty and boring Central Plains...
OK, it’s not that bad... but I’m just keeping my expectations very low for the first couple of towns.
First town is Guisser, which is exactly what I expected. A cluster of modern and traditional homes in the middle of barren fields—OK, they’re not really barren... there are clear signs everywhere that there was a great wheat harvest this year. I guess seeing golden stubble is a lot better than the barren earth we see most years at this time.
I wander Guisser a bit, eat a delicious glass of Raib, play a short set in the shade of a tree... and head on my way...guisser
