Despite the unfortunate circumstances that followed (more on this later, where I was trapped in the desert and unable to leave..) I had an amazing ride through the Sahara for days on camelback. The dunes are everything you’d imagine to be. When we entered the desert, the moon had risen like an orange blob over the horizon and shone in bright fullness over the large dunes. I felt like an Arabian princess, marching through the sand.
This is what it must have felt like in 400 AD, I thought to myself as my camel clunked ahead. I remember tears came to my eyes.
