On my way to Zagora
I’m off to the East. 8 hours bus drive to Zagora.
My times in Essaouira were really good. The city is beautiful and peaceful compared to Marrakech, I spend so much time wandering around the small streets.
I had fun and met a lot of interesting and charming people, had great talks about anything either in French or in English, drank liters of tea in front of Gnaou local bands, smoked some weed listening to rock’n’roll on top of a lonely terrace, shared a couch and an apartment to spare few euros…
And I Also got some nice pictures, wonderful sunsets and nice long exposures of the sea.
Le Piton de la Fournaise
This one date back from my trip in December 2011 in reunion island. We went on a beautiful day, a little too early, for a nice hike on the crater of the last active volcano of reunion island. The way to the top is incredible. The volcano has dug himself a huge crater that cut trought the rocks and go directly to the sea. So every year or so, when an eruption happens, most of the lava just flow trough those natural barriers and go straigh to the sea.
You have to get there early cause after few hours of daylight, clouds begin to accumulate in the crater and soon the visibility is reduced to zero. You can see in my picture the clouds coming our way, the good part is that when you are at the top, you are above the clouds. It give the same feeling you have when you are on a plane but you are free to go. What a wonderful view. Must do!
