    desert and life

    The desert is not that desertic in the Mzab; walking far from the oasis you still find vegetation like these tamaris trees, offering some shadow to the people and their animals . I like to walk even during the hot hours to see things I would not se in other circumstances.

    Surprise!

    tea with camel milk.

    The walks in the oasis lead you to some surprises, like this barley field (I do not think they brew beer in the M’zab; it is barley, not wheat or hard wheat used for couscous). The surprise too is to meet local guys who invite you for a tea. Tea here was made with camel milk, a local delice, better than the usual tea made with water; not bad in fact , very sweet. Some kilometers walking are worth souvenirs like that.

    Have a walk in the oasis

    I loved to walk in the oasis near the cities; Very quickly, you hear only the wind in the palm trees, and your eyes are open for everything, like here, this old water well; water is still pumped from this well, to grow the palm trees and other crops ; I love these old remains of human creativity.
