    Douz is a carrefour for many Arabians who gather anually for the International Sahara Festival. Competitions such as camel rides and local dances are presented to a big
    audience from all Arabian countries. Prominents come from Europe and Saudi Arabia
    even.
    The festival has been made international and lasts for at least 4 days. When I was there
    in 2005, it started on December 25.

    the old man

    This is, undoubtely, my best shot in all of the Douz adventure. There was a gruop of locals standing or sitting nearby the camel's resting post and among them I saw this remarkable old man. I've shot this first picture without asking him for permition, actually he wasn't even awware that I took it. Then I displayed him the picture and he was very pleased, asking me to make another one.

    Family scenery

    This traditional family scene was hanged in the room of our hotel in Douz. The husband is sitting in the upper right corner together with 4 wives. The older (the first wife) sits by the side of the husband. Two are in charge of very young children while one is preparing the “couscous” grains.
    Among the 3 older girls, one is helping for the couscous. The second one helps her mother to take care of a baby. A third (or is it the last wife ?) in the center of the picture does not do anything.
    Among the 4 younger children, twin brothers are looking at their older sister that help for the preparation of the couscous.
