Nap Time


"In the shade of their tent, members of a Tuareg family doze through midday heat near Timbuktu in drought-stricken Mali."

Pure beauty. This is Africa? I didn't know people in Africa looked like this. I am in love with this picture.

Ah...the midday nap. It's so natural - I wish it were a fixture in this part of the world too.

(Though I do get to have mine, in the car at work. It's only for 20 minutes, though - but that's enough.)

yes Sailor , Africa is VAST , 53 countries house many different looking people. The people in this picture are Tuareg - a North African desert nomadic tribe.

Hey Dreamlife - desert life is life in teh raw and everything they do looks so much more real than when we do it in suburbia :)

Thanx Wafa :)
