Entering the Sahara was so full of sand dunes surrounding us. The shape of the blown sand and the formation of dunes was miraculously beautiful. Few nomads were on the beaten path caring for their camels, goats or sheep. We had the privilege to drink tea with some of the local people living along our path. We stayed at the Hotel in erg chebbi and found the place to be clean, king size bed, regular bathroom, hot water, and linens. The staff always made sure we were well cared for and always asked us if there was anything they could do for us. Later we took some camels with our guide to the oasis and spent the night in the heart of the dunes. Someone came and played drums for us and we took out our bottles of wine and the guide took out his tea as we toasted to the newlyweds (us). We danced and laughed till the wee hours of the night and decided to retire to our tent in the middle of the beautiful moonlit Sahara Desert. Thanks to our wonderful guide. We had so much fun and we are thinking of going back to celebrate our anniversary next year.
