Sahara Desert – Taroudannt

Traveling to & from the desert is quite a trip and can take several hours. It is bumpy & rough and can be a bit difficult if you get car-sick. However despite all this, it is manageable especially if you get to stop in the middle of the desert and cuddle some baby goats and rock them to sleep.

It was amazing to see how the weather shifted so quickly as we continued on our journey out of the Sahara desert and onto Taroudannt. OUr Van broke down so we had to walk about 20 minutes as it rolled down the hill but I wasn’t complaining as this was the view! I was in awe! How can anyone not fall in love with Morocco?!

We also had the opportunity to visit an Argan co-op. A real Argan Oil co-op. Many times places will say they are but in reality they are just another business that exploits the work and sale of these products. The women who work in this co-op tend to have come from a variety of situations that put them in the position of basically having to fend for themselves.

It is quite difficult for women without husbands (for whatever reason) to really manage to take care of themselves and their children as they are often abandoned by family as well (not all but many). These Argan oil co-ops help them provide for their families and for themselves. But I beg you to be cautious as many many places will claim to be “Argan Oil Co-ops” but are just another scam.
