Photographer's Note

Dunes are much much livelier than they seem to be.
Besides thousands of animal species, sometimes you can find tourists, hippies, businessmen, Berbers and run away camels.

While our caravan was heading our Berber camp to pass the night, we stumbled upon this poor young Berber lady, whose camel had run away an hour ago. The moment i saw her, i easily felt hopeless for her. But she had her binoculars and actually was rushing to catch the nasty animal.

Camels are funny creatures. When they need a fresher grass in the desert, they can easily abandon you (even though you tie them to a stick). The next morning some of our camels were also gone and we did the same thing: get a binocular and start a search party. What else can you do? :))
