Timia Transportation

  • Sometimes, Travellers need some luck…

    Continued from "Must See"-TipsDuring the morning of my third day in Timia, again no vehicles passed by. Even the truck that was expected yesterday, hadn’t arrived yet. I had given up hope to be I time for the Cure Salee festival and spent another couple of extremely lazy and enjoyable silent hours at the cascade when suddenly, around 11am, Moussa...

  • Finally reaching Timia

    We kept following the main track. Both the camels and I were completely exhausted. It was dark now and nothing to enjoy anymore. I had a really hard time now, after 10 hours on the saddle. I couldn’t persuade my camel anymore to follow the others. “More only one hour”, Moussa – 50 meters in front - shouted. I was in a state of giving up, and became...

Busee sang and Conan made the rhythm using...

  • An Afternoon in Timia

What a pity…he had to renew the lock, that first had to be ordered from the Agadez truck on its next arrival. I decided the young man deserved a good tip…I just wandered around the gardens and the village until darkness. The end of...

  • A warm Welcome in Timia

    continued from "Transportation Tips"It was dark when we finally wandered through the alleys in Timia to the house of “a friend”. We arrived totally unexpected and quite late, but Ahmed, owner of one of the two little stores in the oasis town, welcomed us in as best friends. The mud brick house was extended with a walled 10m2. courtyard, some...
