The Wadi

The river runs round Taroudant and into the Sousse through a wadi. I had read of these of course but not actually seen one until I came to morocco. The sides are vertcal and the bottom flat. most of the time it is entirely dry or has  small abandoned puddles trying to  make a flow but it can change rapidly. After rain maybe twice a year and at the melt-time in the Atlas it becomes a raging torrent. anything in its path would be swept away.
