oh the places you'll go

The Sahara Desert

There are many different kinds of deserts in the world.  Some are hot deserts covered in sand.  Some are cold deserts covered in ice.  The Sahara desert is the largest hot desert in the world and it is located in northern Africa.

The Arabic word for desert or “abandoned place” is Saraha.  Deserts have low humidity and little water.  There are still many things that live in deserts like the Saraha.  Shrubs and cacti are common as well as lizards and coyotes.

We only stayed 2 days in the Sahara Desert because we were touring the entire country.  It was definitely a life time highlight for me.  The beauty is consuming!  We traveled by jeep over the flat endless gravel desert for hours to the vast erg Cheddi sand dunes at Merzouga
