All pictures of this post were made during our drive from Ouarzazate to Erfoud. Today, I would like to show the style of architecture of the Berber people, the Indigenous Non-Arab population of North Africa.
The majority of Berbers, 10.4 million, live in Morocco (40% of the population).
This amazing building is called: Taourirt Kasbah.
Notice little stairs on the roofs of the towers, they symbolize power. You will find them on many buildings in this region.
Here, we are being served Berber tea, it is a green tea prepared with spearmint leaves and sugar, traditional to the Greater Maghreb region.
Mint tea is central to social life in Morocco. The serving of the tea can take a ceremonial form, especially when prepared for a guest.
It is always fascinating to take pictures of local people.
Some buildings are old, some are new:
And here is the place where we had lunch that day. It was gorgeous!
