Portrait of a Berber
Photo and caption by Alicia Elliott
This handsome fellow was our guide into the Erg Chebbi dunes. Several things stay in my memory about him...firstly, he wore only old sandals, but walked more easily and faster than I could in my hiking boots. Secondly, when he removed his turban, his hair was the blackest I'd ever seen. Thirdly, he spoke at least 4 languages-French, English, Berber and Arabic. I was grateful for his part in my adventures, and have since become friends with him.
