The Sun Sets in the Sahara Desert – Stuck in Customs

The Sun Sets in the Sahara Desert

Hot vs. Cold places later in life

After growing up in Texas, I really love the cool climates of New Zealand. I like dressing in layers and never really getting hot! But I know people that are the opposite. I think it kind of depends on where you grow up and how you might be ready for a change later in life. I don’t know… But I know a lot of people that grew up in cold places that are so happy to be in hot places like Texas. It’s all so relative!

Daily Photo – The Sun Sets in the Sahara Desert

I have a lame confession to make about this photo. I was too tired to get to the top of the sand dune to take this photo from the top. I mean, it was absolutely huge. I set out with the best of intentions. It must have been 400 feet high. That may not sound high, but it is effectively almost 1000 feet because every step up makes your feet slide down just about as far as you just ascended! I went right up the spine of the dune so I could put a foot on each side, but the sand was so impossibly soft and fluid that it was almost useless. So I eventually just gave up and thought, “You know what? The sunset will be good enough from right here!”
