Sahara Film Set

I can’t name any of them, but a load of films were made here apparently. Ibrahim,  our tour guide, was a driver for the production of Prince of Persia. Apparently there were thousands of applicants and I’m really glad he was one of the successful ones who benefited from an American salary for a month.

Apart from negotiating us out of a standoff with 200 fierce angry Moroccan men surrounding our van, he sang us traditional Berber songs and gave us all stomach aches from laughing with him.  If you’re on the 3 day dessert tour from Marrakesh and your driver is called Ibrahim, chances are you’re going to have a brilliant and safe trip.
