Two little girls try on second-hand ladies' shoes for sale in the town square. They totter around,
giggling. Dusty stray mongrels mooch about. A model is tweaked and adjusted for a photoshoot. In the middle of cafes, chilly in the winter evenings, unguarded naked flames could easily set fire to the chairs and tables, if not the diners!

A half hour goes past and we are starting to see the bike tracks thin out and only see motorbike tracks and car tracks. It's enough to keep us going but it's starting to take us pretty far out into the desert area but we keep going as we can continue seeing the tracks. It starting to get hot and ...
