Between Marrakech and Ouarzazate is the atlas. It can be seen from the top of the ridge that divides Morocco, with a stunning view. The peaks are red and arid. Death and wind seems to shout from there. Far away from the last village children that bring herbs to sell that they collected from the mountain. Water appears but not a lot. Palm trees and some grass can be seen around the houses that spring from the sand, as if they were just a continuation of the soil itself.
