Argan Trees

Our drive to the country market takes us past many forests of Argan trees, the native species that produces the world famous oil. The goats truly do climb the trees.

Country Souk

The morning visit to the Berber market is a like taking a step back in time. Fruit, vegetable and household appliances are all sold in the traditional way often on the ground. It's truly a feast for your senses.
