Mali & Niger 2006 > Desert Eclipse Expedition > The Camping Trip > The Campers

The first meal was a "welcome dinner" in Agadez at the headquarters of Souleymane Icha, the Tuareg tour operator conducting the expedition. This layout would prove to be typical of all the meals on the whole trip. I'm thinking the little circles visible against the back wall are dust particles suspended in the Agadez air.
