LGZIRA THE MAGIC BEACH REVISITED [08:21]
One of Nature's wonders in Morocco this beach is well hidden from the passers-by on the way to Sidi Ifni. There are several restaurants where the road ends just above the beach. The name is invariably spelt Lgzira and Legzira when written in Latin alphabet. It soothes senses and calms spirits. There are always surprises as when we were quite cold at end of June and almost wanted to have swim in the middle of winter. When passing through the main archway it is advisable to keep to the edge as rocks may be falling and there are no warning signs. The second archway is like a giant elephant foot. The two main attractions may hardly be visible at fist hidden in sea mist or protected by hazy sunshine. I have two other clips from previous visits but this one is more comprehensive and I had no heart to edit the footage.
Narrow Track Atlas Mountains with 4x4 truck [02:12]
We've crossed the Atlas Mountains in Morocco with our Mercedes 1113 truck. These tracks are well suited for Landrovers etc. but a bit too narrow for a 4x4 (real) truck. Look how the stones/rocks are 'crumbling down' into the deep ravine. It's the track from Ait Bou Guemes to Demnat (R302). There are currently widening this track so I guess it will be less spectacular in the near future

King Hassan Mosque Casablanca Morocco [00:56]
King Hassan Mosque in Casablanca Morocco. The Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca was completed in 1993 after great expense and artistic labor, and the result is that it is the 3rd largest mosque in the world. Its gleaming newness and tremendous wealth is a stark contrast against the rest of Casablanca. It's a vast building that can hold 25000 worshippers and accommodate a further 80000 in the courtyards and squares around it. The mosque was designed by the French architect Michel Pinseau and is topped by a soaring 210m-tall minaret, which shines a laser beam towards Mecca by night. In addition to this high-tech call to prayer, the mosque also has a centrally heated floor, electric doors, a retractable roof and a section of glass flooring allowing the faithful to see the Atlantic washing the rocks below.

After we left the Sahara Desert we drove back to Marrakech. This is what a great deal of the drive looked like. Dirt, rocks and more rocks.
