Yes, I was in Sahara Desert, Morocco

Morocco is a land so intrinsically beautiful and rich with heritage that the moment you step foot on it you feel completely transported to another time. We started our trip in Fez, one of the imperial cities in Morocco. Fez is made of almost 2000 years history, where nomads of different tribes meet and trade.

From Fez, we rented a car to drive south to Merzouga, a gateway town to the Sahara Desert. We then spent 2 nights at the Desert. It was a mysterious experience. The camel tour took us into the deep desert. We hit a rain storm when we launched into the desert. What a experience!

We left Merzouga, and drove west towards Marrakesh, which we had run into another rain storm. This time the rain was heavy, we passed through flooded small town and villages, and fast floods caused us delays on driving on the highways.

We arrived at Marrakesh, finding ourselves inside a completely different Moroccan culture. We spent 3 days there.
