... and goats. They were so beautifully hidden in the rocky sands and brush. And some shepherds waved us through. I can imagine the sight of the bus is exciting. There is a lot out there but it is very subtle and one has to be very appreciative of small natural delights. Everything is discreet and cloaked in nature. Truly beautiful and the light extraordinary but so hard to capture. Tomorrow we set the sun with our camel pals. Can't ...
