Today was an ideal touring day after the hectic pace to date & a big day set for tomorrow. A late breakfast was followed by a gorgeous 2 hour hike in sunny temperate conditions & the outlook of the changing autumn colours along the Todra River. The valley is farmed by local Berbers with a huge diversity of fruit & produce & the clever use of irrigation channels for water during the dryer months & larger channels to prevent flooding after the winter melt. At the end of the walk the gorge narrows to little more than the width of the road alongside the river & flanked by enormous cliffs each side.

AHfter today's food tasting of goat targine for lunch we went to a woman's carpet/ rug weaving/embroidery/knotting Cooperative supported by Intrepid. Absolutely beautiful hand made work & the local ladies were very happy when our group left.
