Red sand

2 days in the Sahara

sunny 40 °C

Went to the museum which was quite good - although it was divided into 3 parts which had to be paid for seperately. History part was the best as it gave a good history of Tunisia, the Arabian Nights area was tacky but fun, and the craft section had good exhibitions but could have done with some explainations in English. We went to the rocks - not as expected as parts man made.

Next day adventure began, we hired a 4 x 4 with driver and travelled to Ksar Ghilene via the Chott el-Jerid and Douz. This journey was amazing completely different to what we've seen so far, the salt lake was breath taking and the colours created in the water and salt were brill. We did not stop in Douz but headed straight for Ksar. Glad we hired a 4 x 4 for this part of the journey as it got a bit bumpy as the sand had blown on to the road. Not as expected - thought area would be a small town but instead a few houses was to be found. Initially we had planned to go on a Camel ride in Douz but instead we took one here.
