it is a indescribable place so here are only a few words about the magic Sahara desert, it almost felt like my own journey into the desert as we got out of the mini van and then onto the camel train, i ended up being on the first camel. the smiling berber camel man walking me along through the dunes, and literally into the sunset.
if i did not look around i could have been the only person there, the only noise that of the snapping of cameras and ohing and aring at the magnificent sunset.
i had no idea as to were we where going, i was guessing a camp in the dunes somewhere to sleep for the night, the element of not knowing what was going on only adding to the adventure
a quick stop as the sun went behind the dune for the camel drivers to eat as it is ramadan and they are only allowed to eat or drink after the sun goes down, the heat of day must be a killer.
sleeping under the stars
sweet berber whiskey
sensational sunset and sunrise
sand dunes as far as the eye can see and
i enjoyed sleeping out under the stars, such a simple thing but so amazing and the sky was so clear that millions of stars were able to be seen. although missing the southern cross
all in all i am very glad we made it to the desert that is for sure!!
