Ancient and modern

 

A modern woman in an ancient place; me under a tamarisk tree in Sahara. An ancient culture assimilating modern technology; Amazigh nomad and desert camp owner Salah using his Android phone. Out of shot, (unfortunately!) we have Hassan, 100 year old nomad who was living under the tamarisk and serving us all Moroccan tea, grateful after having taken delivery of a second hand radio to keep abreast of the latest news. When I passed by two weeks later, the rains had come and the only trace of Hassan was a red bag, tied to and flapping on an overhanging branch.
