Meanwhile the French wing of the EDC (with Christophe taking the snaps from Canon and everyone else form iphone ) have left the fort and will head back to Midelt via Imilchil and the Cirque de Jaafare.



We stay in an auberge on the northern outskirts of the town which was newly built about 5 yrs ago.

Will It Buff Out?









The Suit:What would you consider to be your greatest weakness?

Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.

The locals here work the land and work hard so there's all manner of vegetables to buy. You can hit the region raining or hit it dry at this time of year. It's cold at altitude too.

As usual the kids are happy when they see you.

The graded drop down to Midelt

They'll stay in Midelt again and ride on by road to get the return ferry from Nador to Sète in France.


They have now mapped out a longer off road route for next years ride out. Job done. A debrief at home over the Winter weeks will pick out any pro's and con's.


Result

So....we take a dander around the town, sit and watch the world go by and eat in the twin square for about a fiver or so.

Directly opposite the hotel are these steps which take you to the town centre square .


Image



There's various side street workshops which are good to have a wee peep into and chat with the owners


Image




It's also very old and blue......



Image



Image



Image




Image



Image



Image



Image



Image





Al and I notice Dave needs a haircut......so we're now on the hunt for a barber to get his wool clipped.



Image





I tell him we could buy him a wig if he wishes.....


Image




..and dye his wool black....

I hear such phrases as 'sexy baby .... make it more sexy' and 'think like you're making love to the camera' Passers by make U turns,



Image


Image


'Look sultry baby'... was another one

Image


I see a man sporting a comb- over and it reminds us we have ti find a wool clipping place for Dave...
