This and the next two shots are of Frank and his wife Ellen. We met them on our Morocco/Sahara desert adventure with OAT travel company. We had the opportunity to attend a special local event, during which Frank and Ellen were chosen to take part in a wedding ceremony mock up. They and the other travel mates were fantastic people and fun to travel companions.

One of our tours was to go to an argan nut forest where goats climb the trees to get the best leaves and nuts to eat. We were told that sometimes tourist get there just to find all the goats on the ground. During our first visit, we say a couple of goats place a foot or two on a tree but none climbed. Later on our way from another tour we went back to find this and other goats climbing hight in the trees.
This man does pottery in a time proven method handed down through centuries. He was a very friendly guy and had great pride in his work and loved to show how it is done. He is the last potter in Morocco who still used this method. He has tried to get his kids and grandkids to take up the trade but none of them would take it on.
