This past week was another Muslim holiday, Eid al Adha, which Dylan and I celebrated by taking a trip to the Western Desert. It's a great time of year to go to the desert - quite nice during the day (a little hot at times) and quite cool at night. We traveled with an older French couple, as arranged by the travel agency, who turned out to be lovely traveling companions. Our trip encompassed Bahariya Oasis, the Black Desert, and the White Desert. (Did you know that "Sahara" actually means "desert" in Arabic?) In spite of getting a bit sick, Dylan and I throughly enjoyed the getaway. Here's a look at some of our pictures!
