A grand taxi (200dhs) took us an hour out of Marrakech to Imlil, at the bottom of the Atlas mountains. Imlil is the starting point for the Jebel Toubkal hike, 4167 metres. We all got well acquainted; myself, Jeff, Chris (a friend who works for Intrepid Travel here in Marrakech), Fatimazohra (an Arabic teacher at ASM), Lisa and Martin (Chris' friends visiting from Hastings).
We woke up to some delicious breakfast on Sunday morning and then began our hike. Lisa was suffering from Marrakchi air pollution and a bad leg, so Martin and Lisa hiked for an hour with us, and then spent the rest of the day relaxing in Imlil.
We crossed the other side and walked through another village, where boys grow in trees...
...and then down the other side.
And then back into the sleepy mountain village of Imlil.

I was interviewed for a little section in the Sunday Magazine in the Sunday Telegraph - a newspaper in New South Wales, Australia. Here is a little scan of the article. Thanks for emailing the scan mum!
