Morocco Kasbah

Come With Me to The Kasbah



April 12, 2013 


……….. “Come with me … to the Kasbah!”  ………….
The Kasbah in Morocco.  April 15 – May 8.
For two weeks I will travel in Morocco with a small group of photographers to visit fortified towns and Berber villages, the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara desert.  Ride a camel and sleep in a tent! 
Kasbah, medina, and mellah – my lenses are clear, my memory cards clean.  And this time I packed a tall, collapsible tripod.  It fits diagonally in my suitcase. 
On my own for an additional week in Morocco, I plan to drive along the Atlantic coast and the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

Southern Oasis: Kasbah

Kasbah Ait ben Haddou



April 26, 2013

Aït Benhaddou is a fortified city along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech. It is situated in Souss-Massa-Draaon on a hill along the Ounila River and is known for its Kasbahs, although they take damage with each rainstorm.

Most of the town's inhabitants now live in a more modern village at the other side of the river; however, eight families still live within the ksar.
