What a wonderful mechanic at MAN Agadir. The pinched diesel pipe is removed and a new piece of pipe is placed in between. To make a long story short, 3 hours later we are on the road again. After more than 3 months we can go to a Marjane supermarket in Agadir. This is a wonderful moment, what an abundance of everything. In our 3 month of lockdown, we have not been short of anything. But it is still nice to be able to walk around in a supermarket after such a period. We load our cart well so that we have a nice stock
After Agadir we return to Taliouine with a small Dtour. The guys from Betsy on the road call us to find out if we are near Barage Imi El Kheng. They got stuck yesterday at the edge of the barage. Coincidentally we are in the area and an hour later we are at Betsy on the BARAGE …… TJJAAAA, we can not even get to their Betsy because the surface is too bad with the risk that Phoca gets stuck. Towing is not an option, just dig it out and raise it with the sand plates under Betsy. A local truck with enough cables and rope can get Besty on the BARAGE back on the road. An adventure that is going to be talked about a lot.
Together Betsy and phoca drive on to Taliouine, where we arrive just before sunset… .. Tomorrow we will just stay at the campsite. The following days we drive together through too small but breathtaking roads through the mountains because it is not possible to pass the province of Ouarzazate via the main roads. There was a corona outbreak somewhere and the governor locked the province. It is a long detour that we make via the small mountain passes but really breathtakingly beautiful….
Once we are out of the high atlas we say goodbye to our Belgian friends of Betsy on the road and we each go their own way. We drive on to Ouzoud where we are officially informed that the ferry from July 1 is not sailing. with luck we were able to move our tickets to July 13. So we stay 2 weeks longer in Morocco, it is not a punishment…. Although we were looking forward to all those Italian delicacies and especially the hiking possibilities, but what are 2 weeks. We leave Ouzoud and return to the coast. There we will relax and especially very much enjoy the cool sea air while waiting for the 13th of July. The gut feeling and the reports are already positive.
