La Grotte Akhiam to Tizi n Tazerzat, Berber Cafe Hotel
Not so much woke up early but got up early and put clean clothes on, but only over the clothes we still had on from yesterday.
After hot porridge for breakfast first job to go and bury contents of pop up loo. Then broke camp and moved on. As soon as we got out of the valley and dropped down onto the plains the temperature started to rise and all was once more well with the world.
Found a very nice cafe on the road and stopped for second breakfast. Of course an omelette. This one was very nice Berber omelette with lots of herbs peppers and onions. James and Cat arrived just after us and where able to order theirs Sans Tomatoes, lucky devils.
Some tricky driving and navigating again with Rob and Krissy. Drove on through the day and up into the mountains once more with the weather starting to look iffy again we finally arrived at the Berber Cafe Hotel, it looked a bit basic but we booked straight into the rooms and reserved more for the rest of the party travelling behind up the hill. A very wise choice as it meant we got the rooms just before a party of French also travelling the same route. Ha Ha Ha, they had to wild camp.
The hotel turned out to be better than first appearances with very friendly locals, good food and warm comfy room. Plus stunning views. (Don't mention the toilet [Golden Shot toilet and shower combination])
Plaid cards in the common room (also lounge, reception, dinning and if needed extra room). Blond Dave taught us a new game of Blob. I won so all good in the world.
