IN THE DESERT

I am one day too early for Wordless Wednesday for which please scroll down. The sun probably burnt my brain !

Here are some pictures of Ilona and myself in the desert

We took a Jeep to the Sahara desert and it is amazing that there are people living there.

We had to buy the special Berber scarfs to protect ourselves from sand and sun. If there is a little wind the sand flies all around and feels like needle stitches.

Berbers are living in a tent and are nomads. They are very friendly and offered mint tea to the whole group. We were 24.

Water is very precious so here I am with a big bottle. Joking some Morocans said that still water is muslim wine and sparkling water is muslim champagne !

These are some houses which we saw on our way to the desert. Some places still have no electricity.

Sorry if I can't visit you but it takes ages to load a page ! I will catch up when I am back home !

The Sahara...wow, I've read about it and here you are in it. You would need big bottles of water, there and the protective headwear. What an interesting time you are having.
