Tunisia Trip -- Part Nineteen
Then it was off to the dunes for fun time.
Visiting "The Camel".
The salt flats of Chott el Djerid where parts of "Star Wars" and the "English Patient" were filmed. This is the largest salt pan in the Sahara, comprising more than 5,000 square kilometers.
Dunes with salt flats in the distance.
Quiet time on the dunes. It's important to stop facing downslope, for obvious reasons.
Sliders -- just like snow at home:
More camels [OK, Dromedaries -- sheesh!]
Then back into our cruisers for a quick trip into town.
