A Berber Village in Morocco from the Air

Berber Village from the Air

A Berber village in a valley outside Marrakesh in Morocco. Another of the hot air balloon shots from Wednesday. It was so peaceful drifting overhead, we could hear animals calling and see people looking up. There were hardly any motorised vehicles at all. All those buildings, except for the mosque, were made of mud and straw. Look around you, how different is your life from theirs?

Fires bursts into the hot air balloon we flew in yesterday near Marrakech, Morocco. The air in the balloon has to be 85C hotter than the surrounding air to provide enough lift to raise the weight of the basket and passengers so we were always warm!
