After Fez, we bought our own Sahara Desert Tour. One of the stops we went to was Ait Ben Haddou. The views were simply stunning in this Islamic medieval city. Surrounded by majestic stark icy capped mountains, we scaled up the adobe colored Jesus of Nazareth like huts. Truly, it felt like we went back in time to biblical Jerusalem.
