Sometimes just enough tarmac for the bike. St. Piran was our guardian angel and fortunately could fly faster than we could ride:D

Great report - really gets across the stresses and strains of travelling in an unfamiliar culture.
Is Todra paved road now?
And what is this Argan oil to which you refer? OK I'll google it...

from wikipedia

Before modern times, the Berbers of ancient Morocco would collect undigested argan pits from the waste of goats which climb the trees to eat their fruit. The pits were then ground and pressed to make the nutty oil used in cooking and cosmetics. However, the oil used in cosmetic and culinary products available for sale today has most likely been harvested directly from the tree and processed with machines.

Can't help picturing Austin Powers - "hmn, tastes a bit nutty"

:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen: That's the one. It certainly has a 'distinctive' flavour, fortunately not at all reminiscent of goat.:mrgreen:

And yes, tarmac all the way to Todra Gorge.

And finally.....
Bored today. Uploaded another clip. This was very shaky - Sue holding the camera on my shoulder. You tube sorted it (almost)

In Morocco we would have gladly exchanged some of the heat for a little rain. Now it's the other way round.
