sahara sunrise

• 14 comments •


The noise of the morning fire getting started woke us up just in time to see the sunrise. Deceived by the hot Marrakesh days, we stupidly didn't bring any coats so we wrapped ourselves in blankets and huddled together on a sand dune. After some tea around the fire, one of the guys at the camp gestured for me to stand next to him and he wrapped some fabric around me without any explanation before he helped me up onto the camel. I joked that it was some traditional ceremony and that we're totally married now. He led us back to Zagora on the camels where our ride was waiting to take us back to Marrakesh. - Mina
