Took a bus and a taxi to get to the entrance of the desert. The taxis here are not very traditinal, though, in our experience they were often loaded with as much as twice as many people as the car would normally fit. People, sheep, goats or any combination of these, actually - a funny experience.
Then we arrived, and way before all my expectations I was riding a dromedary camel through the Sahara, I always thought it would take me many more years to do this. It is really, really beautiful, especially when you do not have anything to do but eating, drinking mint tea, walking around barefoot and watching the dunes change from red to yellow to almost white and back again as the sun rises and sets over them. And a night that reminds you of how the sky truly is, when there are no clouds, no lights and no pollution at all - a surprisingly dense star population.
Wonderful experience, but with a small downside - the camel hump hurts the bones a lot...
