The winter desert gets cold after sundown…

Wrapped up warm


Living in the Sahara is not all about blazing heat and sitting on dunes watching spectacular sunsets! It is mid December and winter nights are very cold. There is no central heating, or heating of any kind, (other than the cat who lives here too and likes to curl up next to me) so wrapping up in plenty of warming layers is essential. Forget fashion! Unless your wardrobe is full of Arctic winter sports apparel, you’ll find yourself in as many blankets as you can find. Cover your head whilst sleeping, if you haven’t got a woolly hat, then improvise with a scarf. This will help to conserve your body heat. Keep smiling and remember that everyone else is cold too. Brrrrr!! Don’t worry, the sun will come out tomorrow…
