The Beduoin Campsite is a 90 minute camel ride from the main hotel
For a camp it is clean and comfortable
There is a toilet and a washbasin, but no water!
Good dinner and breakfast
Absolute quiet, and the stars are like spotlights in the clear sky
Berber music and songs are the entertainment
The best part is the ride to and from the camp
The main hotel has showers, swimming pool, restaurant, etc.

... half back, though he tells me the same story! We once again climbed the dunes...which is harder than one may think...well for me anyway!

We named our Camels, Jed settled on Donny, and ...
... out of Tinehir, a large truck passed us kicking up a stone which hit our windscreen with so much force that it chipped it in two places about a centimetre apart; this soon became one chip as a crack immediately joined them together. We pulled off the road and squeezed some glue into the crack, which became tacky instantly because the windscreen was so hot.....now we have a sticky mess in the top corner....but we still have ...
... and throngs of people in every town we passed, singing, dancing and playing drums. Here I was thinking it was all for me, but alas, turns out the King is really popular. And has a great property portfolio... Giant palaces in every single city we went through. And royal golf courses for that one Saturday he might be passing through and feel like a putt. On many a hill of a night you can see the lit up words, Allah, King, Country. A very proud country.
... where the powder room was. David, Devron and I just laughed and said "pick a sand dune with your name on it". Her bubbly personality changed quickly when she realized we were not joking. She confessed she had only ever used a toilet. Well the audible commentary from the dune she choose was hilarious. Her friend went to help her and she could not work out how to squat and decided to take her ...
