Taghia un petit village berbère 

Taghia is a tiny village in the High Atlas, reachable with a 2 hours walk from the village of Zaouiat. The altitude of the village is about 2000m, so when we arrive a cold wind freezes us to the bones and snow is visible on all the ledges and many of the northern slopes. Apparently only 10 days before it snowed a good 15cm. The first week is difficult as we haven't brought enough warm clothing and I manage to catch a cold. I should get a T-shirt "Went to Africa, froze my ass off".
