moving around in tafraout

Tafraout [pop. 5000] is a quite and small touristical town in the Anti-Atlas full of colourful adobe houses incredibly hanging on pink granite rocks. Heart of a vast region of oasis and almond trees valleys, remains an important commercial centre of this berber land. People's hospitality and curiousness (first you think they always want to sell you something, then you'll see that most of them just want to know about you) can only be compared with their trading natural instinct. There are many shops in town to provide with food and souvenirs and a weekly market (zouk) on wednesday, the smaller daily central zouk is also good enough. You'll find 2 gas stations, post office, banks, chemist's, a small hospital, internet access and 3 hammams (local baths).
