The humanitarian raid transporting firemen vehicles to Ouagadougou has to cover next to 5400 km, from Tangier and by the roads of Morocco, Mauritania, Mali and then Burkina-Faso.
After some troubles with the Customs in the port of Tangier, we could go, with 4 days of late we tried to gain on by driving more each day.
The 23th, we join the Ksar-Tafnidilt to the south of Boujdour.
The road follows here the Atlantic ocean and is edged by dunes. The crosses the tar, moved by the wind.

This is a wonderful shot with great depth and a lovely view. Well done! I would have added some more saturation and contrast to bring out the colours a bit more. I posted a photo to your workshop, I hope you don't mind?

I'll be following your track :)
It's a territory of Western Sahara occupied territory, not Morroco.
Once I hitched there I was given a lift by a Saharavi man. Each time we passed a moroccan check point we took out and place Saharian propor on the car.
btw. I was thought it's customary to U fill up bottles with water before U set on the road and you throw it out as it's a supply for saharian fisherman who are down the shore without any acces to potable water, working hard to earn some money and send it to their families who live in Saharavi refuge capms behind the Saharian wall on Polisario govered area.
Some time if they fail to find it You may see them standing along the road, having their palm formed in OK sign put closed to their mouths. It means "Dear passer by drop some water for me if U have it, please."

Hello Yannis. The typical Moroccan landscape. Everything reduces to sand, stones, dunes and something agriculture. And Morocco is nevertheless an interesting country for Traveller. Best regards, Wolfgang.
