We took a 12-hour bus ride from Marrakesh to M'Hamid. The national bus line provided timely service and a clean, modern bus. But 12 hours is a long time on a bus, no matter what. I can't say the time passed quickly, but the scenery was truly spectacular. We took a lot more handsome pictures than we'll wind up showing here, some of which are of more traditionally photogenic mountain passes and palm-filled valleys and striking rock formations. But we think this one, from some mud-walled town along the way whose name we forget, captured something a bit more Moroccan than pretty scenery. Reasonable people might disagree.
