The author is caught by Brenda’s lens, having just mounted Ali Baba his faithful and thankfully cheerful camel. We are getting ready for a camel train journey into the dunes of Erg Chebbi in the sub-Saharan regions of Morocco near the Algerian border. Our objective? Simply to travel to a vantage point high in the dunes for a view of the sun setting from these African skies. It is my hope that by reading this blog you will gain at least a small glimpse of the wonders we saw and the great time we have had in Morocco. Some of my entries were done on the road when impressions of sights and events are still fresh in my mind. However it was not always easy to find the time or a connection as so I have now gone through and filled in some of the blanks, added some of the 1,200 or so photos from the comfort of our own kitchen desktop.
