Three Moisture Vaporators

A Star Wars Spaceport! Still there from the Star Wars film!

 

For this part of this part of the trip my daughter was 12, I reverted to 12, and Anne just had to put up with us.

 

We decanted from the coach into a series of Toyota Landcruisers and headed off on dirt roads into the desert. Plumes of dust following us were whipped away by the fierce wind. Eventually we got into proper dunes - real Sahara! The drivers tracked us up and down them for fun, and then out of nowhere came the set for Mos Espa spaceport from the Star Wars Episode 1 film.

 

Bethan and I had watched Episode 4 together only a couple of weeks before so it was great to step into reality.

 

"These are not the 'droids you're looking for" Cue the old Jedi mind trick je crois!
