We left the frenetic touring of cities and businesses and traveled, first by 4-wheel drive vehicles, then by camel and finally by 4-wheel again into the Sahara Desert to our peaceful tent camp destination. The camel ride was lots of fun, and they put these turbans on us as protection from the sun and sand. The tents were comfortable and the Sahara Desert was magnificent as we arrived and the sun was beginning to set. The shadows cast by the setting sun and the sand dunes were great.
The Sahara at sunset is gorgeous! Did the camera spit at you?
You look like real Bedouins in those turbans.
Your pictures are so amazing.
Funny typo….. My camera rarely spits, but neither did the camels. Glad you like the photos.
Ride’m cowboy! Great shots.
Cohens on camels! Looks like so much fun!!!
Hmmm… Cohens on Camels, sounds like a new reality show.
Love the headgear! Did you wear them only on the camel ride? No camel racing I presume…. The desert picture at sunset is beautiful. Have been enjoying all your pictures.
They had us wear the turbans for the camel ride to protect us from the sun and if the wind started to blow sand around, you can cover your face. No camel racing…
You two must have had a great time!
Gotta do some wild and crazy things
in these retirement years. Good for you.
Thanks Pat, we did have a great time. Lots of fun. Hope you and Larry are planning some fun retirement travel yourselves.
What an experience! Looks like you had a good time! The tents look pretty cool!
It was pretty amazing experience. More info on the tents in the next post on Monday.
I am just so impressed that you did all that. And I love the pictures.
Thanks, and that’s the day I had actually gotten sick earlier in the morning, but I was determined to do the camel ride. And it was fun.
