... lots of plain clothes security), the military (we saw one tank on the road), the many police and police checkpoints, there was never a time we felt threatened or feared for our safety.

Looking out of our cabin we could see past the port and it was sand, sand, and more sand. Jagged mountains of sand with what looked like no vegetation at all on them. So starkly beautiful!.
