“Trust in Allah, but tie up your camel.” – Old Muslim proverb
Five camels and one guide named Adi.
Endless sand dunes, Algeria in the distance.
An hour trek on the camels, passing tiny nomadic tented settlements.
Camel shadows flickering on the sand.
Hiking up the dunes to watch the sunset.
Leaping down the dunes with wild abandon.
Sharing mint tea with a nomadic man who spoke no English.
Enjoying a traditional Moroccan dinner – a tagine of chicken, carrots and potatoes.
Falling asleep under the stars as Adi played the drums and sang for us.
Waking before sunrise and climbing the dunes again.
The trek back to civilization, good-bye to our camels and thank you to Adi.
Another beautiful night spent in the desert.
