A well balanced journey to spend between the silent of Sahara and the fascinating red city, Marrakech.
The desert gives you no warning. It just comes out at the end of a road or path. You pass from a cityscape to endless dunes with different sunlight reflections. It all happens very fast. But the Sahara desert is not a medina: you live it, it doesnâ€™t gives itself away, you must embrace its mistery and secrets and try to imagine the dream behind the sand dunes that sometimes move and sometimes stay still. The desert is an idea, a way to strip ourselves and dare looking at our faces, a mirror we must take seriously
