One of the most beautiful excursions we did was driving in a Jeep to the Sahara, then riding on a camel into the dunes to watch the sunset.
We travelled with this Jeep on the same road like the Paris-Dakar ralley. Seeing all this beauty I found it rather a shame that cars are racing through this peaceful desert spoil it. But it brings money and that is as always important. Especially in poor countries.
Here is my friend Ilona who had picked up a little goat which came to great us.
We stopped at a Berber's place, in the middle of the desert. They are nomades and live in tends or mud houses which they leave to move further and then the next family moves in.
one of the houses, the children came out but not the woman
In another tent we were invited for a mint tea. Very friendly people. The men are all dressed in blue.
A look over the Sahara
the camels are waiting for tourists
and we climbed on ! They kneel down but when they get up you have to grip yourself at the handle of the seat because otherwise you would fall down on the other side. It goes quite quick !
My camel and my guide. It felt like in a shaking boat !

and finally the sunset. It was like in a dream. We all kept very still and you could hear the silence of the desert.
