A Mosque in the Atlas Mountains

Up in the air during the daily call to prayer

One of the coolest things about being in Marrakech was being up high when the mosques call their faithful to come pray many times per day. From the top of every mosque you hear all kinds of sounds and songs… I have no idea what they are saying, but it does sound kind of awesome.

Daily Photo – A Mosque in the Atlas Mountains

It was a long and windy drive from Aït Benhaddou to Marrakech, but it was totally stunning. There were about ten other places I wanted to stop in the mountains, but I didn't have the time. But maybe this one mosque was just enough. I was surprised there was still snow on the mountains, and it made for the perfect background.

Third-World Crazy Vehicle Situations

Whenever I am in places that are far away and I see people doing insane things with vehicles, it never ceases to amaze. And most things I see seem to appear totally unsafe, and more or less like fraternity pranks! What’s the craziest thing you have seen?

Daily Photo – Hay!

I can't believe this thing has somehow evaded the principals of Newtonian physics! When I pulled into a small kasbah called Aït Benhaddou in the desert to take some photos, I saw this huge truck full of hay rumbling past. I barely kept my wits about me to take a photo just after it passed.

On the plus side, it must be very easy to get the hay off the truck!

Hay!

Where Daenerys Targaryen Dragon-Roasted the Slavers

Game of Thrones Season 4

Are you watching it? Did you read the books? Let me know! I read 4/5 books before watching the series, and I’m so excited to see it on the big screen… such an awesome show! :)

Daily Photo – Where Daenerys Targaryen Dragon-Roasted the Slavers

This is a Aït Benhaddou, an incredible kasbah near Ouarzazate, Morocco. I've always wanted to visit this place ever since I saw it in Gladiator. It's the place where Russell Crowe was taken on a stretcher and where he learned to become a gladiator. You may also remember it if you watch Game of Thrones. It's one of the spots where Daenerys took her dragons with the unsullied.
