Desert Wanderings

We are back from our Saharan adventure. The desert was definitely one of the more beautiful and mesmerizing places I’ve ever seen. Riding a camel into the dunes for one day to sleep in the sand under countless bright stars is something I’ll never forget. Getting there was a feat in itself. Driving around Morocco as a tourist is not the easiest or most pleasant of activities; dealing with locals who can get quite pushy about exploiting tourists gets trying at times. Overall though, it was a fantastic trip, and I would definitely return to the Sahara in the future.

I didn’t get up close to any horses during our little road trip. At a few towns just south of the Atlas Mountains, however, we did see large numbers of horse-drawn carts transporting people and goods. I noticed severe lameness in about 80% of those animals that were trotting as we passed by them in the car. That kind of sight made me pretty homesick, as I thought about all of the horse owners back home who pay so much attention to staying up to date with their farrier and maintaining their horses’ soundness.
