large_1297706_14472641065963.jpgAfter a long drive (almost the whole day) our driver went off-road on to a faintly visible trail. We could see the sand dunes in the distance and we passed several Auberges on our way to Auberge Yasmina. Every next one that came in sight we kinda hoped it was the one, we had more then enough of this bus ride. Finally we arrived at wat seemed to us to be the last Auberge in the row (don't think it was though) We were welcomed with a cup of the traditional Moroccan tea and then we were shown to our tents. The Auberge also has 'normal' rooms with bathroom and all, but we were to sleep in the bedouin tents and use the shared facilities, not that that's a bad thing, on the contrary, we all got the good old camping trip feeling.

After putting our stuff in the tent and checking it out, it's pretty luxurious, light, a socket to charge our phones (vital in this digital age) and a nice bed, we sat on the terrace and watched the sun go down. I took some pictures but they're not that special or as one of my fellow group members said it: It wasn't a great sunset, there have been better ones. Diner, what a surprise, Tajine! At dinner we shared one of the bottles of wine we brought, the bottle of red we safe for tomorrownight in the desert. After dinner I walk on to the first sand dune outside the Auberge to look at the stars, they are so much more clear out here! Seems Morocco has more stars than Belgium.
