... It wasn’t quite like I expected & most of the trip was on very rough stony tracks through very desolate country, much like in parts of outback Australia. We finally got to our camp at the Erg Chigaga sand dunes. We only used 4 wheel drive for about 30 seconds of the trip. We climbed the biggest dune & watched the sunset.

The fourth was donated by the wife ...
... the boys tables, and as the butterfly craft had gone down so well this morning we decided to do it with these kids too. You’d think that 3 adults looking after only 8 young boys would be no problem – you’d be wrong! As soon as their teacher left the classroom they went crazy! They were so demanding, pushy and quite selfish, pushing their friends to the side to get the stickers they wanted or snatching the glue from one of the boys using ...
