On our first day we came across an oasis hidden in the canyon. The 15 ft square pool of water was teaming with fish and frogs. Maidenhair ferns hung from the shadowy walls dripping with water.
From the bottom pool a narrow channel led off underneath the overhanging rock to the village a kilometre away. Nothing is wasted here.
This is a quick sketch done while the others sampled Moroccan tea from Omar the proud host of the oasis!
