Ait Benhaddou. Welcome to the city of Yunkai / Witajcie w mieście Yunkai

There are no less than 1000 kasbah at the foothills of Atlas. Built some 500 years ago, they still stand unchanged despite the time that passed. Only some got the electricity connected, while most of the Berbers continue to live the way their ancestors taught them, working hard to ensure their families got everything they need. We reach the most famous village in the southern … Continue reading Ait Benhaddou. Welcome to the city of Yunkai / Witajcie w mieście Yunkai

Telouet. Kasbah at the End of the World / Kasba na końcu świata

Our car drives with a fascinating speed of 15km per hour, leaving clouds of dust behind. There is no regular road leading towards Telouet. It looks more like a rally route or a badly prepared bike path. We are not entirely convinced whether we have made a good choice, but either way, the road is not at all suitable for turning around. Our guidebook did … Continue reading Telouet. Kasbah at the End of the World / Kasba na końcu świata

Atlas Studios. The Biggest Film Studios in the World / Największe studio filmowe na świecie

Widziałem dzisiaj niewolnika, który stał się potężniejszy od Cesarza Rzymu There is nothing about Hassan that makes him look like a common guide. In his dark Ray-Bans he reminds me more of a fighter pilot, an Arabic version of Tom Cruise from Top Gun. Before we know it, he could leave us, sit in the cabin of his F-16 and fly away to fight ISIS … Continue reading Atlas Studios. The Biggest Film Studios in the World / Największe studio filmowe na świecie

Dades. Valley from the Outer World / Dolina z innego świata

Sand and dust whirlwinds hovering around us effectively block all the views through the windshield of our car. We think then that we wouldn’t like to be in the shoes of the employees of the carwash they will take our car to after the rental. Fear. Should be continue driving? Should we turn around? If so… where to? Rocky desert stretching at the feet of … Continue reading Dades. Valley from the Outer World / Dolina z innego świata

Erg Chebbi. Sunrise over the Dunes / Wschód słońca nad wydmami

Silence. This is your only companion on this trip. There is no other place on earth, you will experience it so deeply as here. A night under the sky lit by millions of stars is an unforgettable experience, which will change your entire perception of the world. A barefoot walk through the desert sands cannot be compared to anything else. Perhaps only to the sunrise … Continue reading Erg Chebbi. Sunrise over the Dunes / Wschód słońca nad wydmami

Rissani. Adventures off the beaten track / Przygody na niezbadanym szlaku

“How is that cow bawling!”  – says Aga when we stop in front of a gate of one of the Ksour. The cow is tied with a string and surrounded by a bunch of kids, laughing and staring at the animal with ill-concealed fascination. Such attractions are clearly not happening here everyday. “C’est un mariage aujourd’hui!” – “There is a wedding today” – we suddenly … Continue reading Rissani.
