Photographer's Note

While we were touring Algeria in summer 2013, in the middle of Ramadan (Muslims fasting holy month), one of the unforgettable meetings we had in the town of Timimoun (200 miles north of Adrar city), was this kind old man who was fleeing the 58 degrees of the burning Timimoun days, to go hide and take a nap inside this big cave where temperatures cool down a little. He told us that within his more than eighty years, he never went far than his house neighborhoods...something not really surprising, as the closest agglomeration is 40 miles away
