29. Down we Go

Back Main page Fwd

The guide took us to a place where the sand dune reached all the way to the plateau we were on. From here we were told to go down to the tour bus that was parked in the bottom of the valley, right through the sand. And because of the nature of the sand, you can walk straight down, even if the slope is considerable, no need to zig-zag. Our guide recommended that we should do this barefoot, but I found my hiking boots a bit too clumsy to carry.
