We had to change the room, because there was a door connecting two different rooms. One can hear everything in the next room.

... but it paid to be fairly quick if you wanted to have a picture without people in the background! The second stop was for photos of the sun setting behind the sand dunes & 2 clowns decided to perch themselves at the top of the tallest sand dune, right in the path of where the sun was setting! Aarrhh! so inconsiderate! We managed to get a couple of shots by walking quite a distance away from the main group. When we reached the traditional desert dwellers campsite, ...
