Veiled beautiful tuareg girl (coloured),Ghadames, Libya

During the Gadhamis festival, people from all around the country come back in the old abandoned town (UNESCO listed) , and live for few days inside the family house. The old town is really impressive to visit, as it looks like an underground city, protected from the sun by covered alleys, and very few windows in the houses. The kids are proud to wear the traditional clothes, and for the girls, the family gold and silver jewels.

Lots of Tuaregs also come from around to celebrate the town.
