Casablanca Challenge

It is over a week now since we arrived home safely after our Moroccan adventure, where the weather was sunny and even warm (up to 28 C).
Very tough (proper) rally with long stages and tight time schedules, long climbs (with dangerously high side drops). All twisty in tarmac but usually narrow, with uneven road sides (gravel) and potholes. Great rally roads and wonderful scenery.

Far too rough by everybody’s opinions, and not requiring much driving skills, just a bullet proof car (or should I say a washboard and solid rock track proof car), but at least some really competitive stuff;

June 18th, day 23, a day-off in Moscow  PART II

But of course the people I meet the most are the garage mechanics and other professionals we approach for help in sorting out our car’s problems. You already met the on-the-ground radiator-fixing Mongolian “magician”. Here is a small selection of other characters:
