HOW TO CROSS THE ROAD IN THE SAHARA


We got up at 4.15 am so that we could set off from the Sahara Douz Hotel and get to the Shott el Jerid Salt pans before dawn. The buses stop at the same place every morning and the local Tunisians are ready.
Fortunately I did not have to rely on the facilities.
And I had already bought a rose of the desert the previous day from a guy in the dunes.
Not this one though!
And i had wandered round the salt pans whilst waiting for this...
It was all worth it.
And of course the best way to cross the road in the desert becomes obvious in daylight!!!
Cheers Gillian

That's such a stunning sunrise, that zebra crossing in the middle of no where is very funny though!
