We visited this Berber lady and her family, reaching their desert home on the edge of a long dried out lake by landrover, a LONG way from the last road. It brought home just how harsh life is, seeing their well in the distance as a desert sandstorm approached from the dunes behind. Since losing her husband, their only form of income had been from the occassional tourist that visited.

I still feel deeply uncomfortable asking people for a picture, but this lady was kind enough to pose for this one. Maybe I'll feel more comfortable from now on!
