I am posting this as a huge gale is blowing outside. In the foyer of our hotel, it’s dark except for a few lamps. The doors are shut to keep out the sand.
An hour or so before sunset on Saturday, we set out on a ride into the dunes near Merzouga for an overnight camp in the desert with the assistance of Hussain, our all-in-one camel leader, chef and musician.
- We met a couple from Lithuania at our tent site and shared dinner of an olive salad, pasta, and chicken and potato tagine. In case anyone’s wondering, the alcohol free days here are going very well.
