It is very weird to visit 3rd world countries. All I can say is I am not comfortable being a tourist in places where every day life is so tough. I went there thinking I may one day offer tours to clients there, but what I return with is the desire to help them build functioning sceptic systems. Inshalah!

Sahara Flora

Palm trees that produce yummy dates, Tamaris trees or bushes that create shade, a lady bug, something fragile w/ flowers, poisonous & ingenious plants!

Morroco - The Sahara Desert

We traded the mules for 2 dromadaries for 7 nights under the stars in the Sahara, something I never really imagined I would do! Just so you know, we walked, this photo was taken for the Morocan with us!

Morroco - The Atlas Mountains

For 5 days we traversed the Atlas range through a river gorge with 2 mules. Amazing & totally different from what we are used to!

At the top of Col de Balme we found a bunch of balloons from a wedding in Swiss-Germany! I am off to Marocco for the rest of the month to meet mules & camels! Keep the cheese ready for when I return!

Col de Balme

Well the last outdoor fondue was such a hit that it had to be done again! Oh yeah, and the hike was magnificient, views of Mont Blanc & Chamonix at the col. As well as alpine blueberries fresh off the bushes!

I have always wanted to go to the top of the ridge on the East side of Ovronnaz, but never really thought it was possible. What a view - the whole bas & haut vallais at your feet!

Fondue at St.Christophe

First low-altitude snowfall required a hike with a fondue in the snow!
