We began in Erfoud, the town at the edge of the desert, which has a reputation as the fossil capital.
These are ammonites, if my notes are right.
Idris was our tall and handsome guide in Rassini before we went into the desert.
Idris led us to a store with nice handicrafts and then to a pre-school.
After a while we took 4-by-4 vehicles into the desert.
We stopped for a visit with a nomadic woman in her tent.
The desert is beautiful.
We reached our destination: sand dunes.
Taking one-handed photos with a big DSLR from the back of a plodding camel is not easy.
I liked this shot into the sun.
We got back to the camp after dark and had a good meal while six men
from sub-Saharan Africa played instruments and danced.
