The Real Desert- The Sahara!

This was the highlight of my trip to Al Maghreb lol (Morocco)! Going to the Sahara and spending the night there. It was amazing, especially at night time. Baji and I, and a few other adventurous people, decided to sleep on cots outside of the tents, under the beautiful star filled sky:) We spent most of the night talking and counting how many times we saw a shooting star lol. I kept telling Baji, "OMG, I can't believe I can actually see the Milky Way!" but she wasn't as shocked as I was lol, or maybe she didn't know what the hell I was talking about! :D

So here are a few pictures:) The pictures just don't capture the beauty of it ( I had a really crappy camera at the time lol)

The Algerian Border:

The beautiful dunes



The very long (and painful lol) camel ride.

High noon on the dunes

ahhh memories...

Mojave Desert

The Mojave Desert

These are the only pictures I was able to find, I only had pictures on my phone:(

California Desert

I've been living in Cali for a year now, and I have to say my favorite part of being here is having the desert so close by. I absolutely love the desert, the hot wind blowing against your face, the sound of the wind, the sand lol. I just love everything about it:)
Here are a few pictures of my last trip to Palm Springs, CA.

Those are date tress. California has the best dates in the USA, well I think it;s the only state to grow them lol.

This is Barstow, a small town about 1h45 minutes from the Mojave Desert (I'll post some pix of that later)

The one and only...


At Busch Gardens in Tampa. Even the dinosaurs are in awe.

Night at the Museum

Supposedly this was the exact set from that Pharoah scene in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian movie. This was at the Smithsonian in D.C.
