Tuareg Woman

I asked him how the Tuareg spent their time doing nothing.
He didn't reply for a long time. " We listen to the sounds," he said at length.
"To the silence?"
"There is never silence."
"But how do you stand having no books , no television, or internet?"
Fouad grinned. " When life is too quiet, we talk."
