12 days of Morocco (Part III) - The Atlas Mountains and Erg Chebbi Dunes

 We took a trip from Marrakesh over the Atlas plateau to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi sand dunes

Children were waiting by the road to get some money or other gifts

In Merzouga, we jumped on dromedaries and took a ride to the camping site in the middle of the sand dunes where we spent the night
