Before I took any of these shots…..I slipped over on the wet rocks!!
My hat and sunglasses went flying (the latter not to be found again) and I banged up my left arm pretty badly and I suspect cracked a rib or two. I say suspect, because I didn’t go and get it checked out mainly because spending a few hours in a Moroccan A&E wasn’t exactly high on my list of things to do and also because unless you break a rib to the point where it punctures a lung, then there isn’t really anything they can do……you just have to rest up and take pain killers.
Thankfully the camera remained undamaged and I was determined to take a few shots of the sunset before I hobbled back to the Riad:
Unfortunately I was in quite a lot of pain and discomfort for the remainder of the trip (and for three or four weeks when we got home) and although my darling wife did a great job of patching me up it did somewhat curtail what we had planned to do in the Atlas Mountains….our final stop on our mini tour of Morocco.
