... have an opportunity like this at all. Now the water is not all blue and sparkly but rather a shade if green. We checked into our hostel and then headed around the oasis looking for a place for lunch. It is a really small oasis town and we were able to walk around in about 15 minutes. We looked at options for dune buggying and sand-boarding as well as tours to vineyards then settled down at an oasis facing restaurant for a meal of the day. We had decided that we would ...
