Sand, sand everywhere

But we did have a drop to drink

We may have been glamping in the Sahara, but getting there wasn't easy. There is a reason that the camel's feet look like saucers. They walk with ease across the sand, while we sink with every step. Our camel drivers wrapped us up well in turbans and orchestrated our ascent and descent from the beasts, but the long ride felt quite - shall we say adventuresome. One of us is already celebrating her last transport by dromedary. Our tent(s) is/are magnificent. We have a king size bed, desk and chairs, and little closet frame in the large oval, a small sink room adjacent, and flush you-know-what on a little throne beside the shower. After we had used all of them, we went to the top of the dune where Gnawa musicians played their music. Gnawa is described as Moroccan Gospel - hmm, didn't quite recognize it. A fabulous dinner followed, and then no WiFi until Tuesday. We felt very out of touch, but even more in touch with this magnificent world.

Hello, Hope and Bill! Great to read and see your adventures and you! They really have you doing “total immersion” learning. I emailed you but am not sure if you have access to your email right now. You remain in our prayers for a safe and enjoyable adventure. Stay clear of those scorpions!!! We love and miss you!

I remember that you have ridden on camels before, Hope. Knowing you, you would do it again if they would only give you more tush padding. The whole journey sounds awesome. Glad you were willing to make such amazing exploration in these challenging times.
