A camel trip through the Sahara desert in Tunisia

First of all, you get on the camel.

And hope it doesn’t dislike you too much.

You never know who you’ll meet along the way.

But you’ll need someone to guide you.

As you walk past abandoned buildings.

They’re be other riders in front and behind you.

As you head towards the sunset.

You can walk your shadows get long.

You can see your camel’s hoof prints in the sand.

You will pass more trees than you think.

Even your camel will look to the sunset.

And leave your desert companion behind.

See the moon over the desert.

As you drive home through roads lined with sand.

Knowing that you followed in the footsteps of so many people, mesmerised by dancing sands and watching the sun disappear behind a dune at the end of a long journey.
