Early morning, Erg Chebbi

Day 7 started early, with a pre dawn wake up call from Mohamed so that we could climb back up our local giant sand dune to watch the sun rise. I made do with a lower altitude ridge, and watched the various camp camels being readied for the return trip.

 

Back at Auberge Salama we had a smashing breakfast (but no washing permitted), then it was back across the hammada to Merzouga and the road to Rissani, Erfoud, Tinejdad, Tinerhir until we reached our final destination: Todra Gorge.
