We were a workshop group visiting the Black and White Deserts, about 200 miles southwest of Cairo. As part of the itinerary, an arrangement was made with some local camel owners to model for the group, but they (the camels and men) are real, and the desert is real. This could have happened. The deserts were unique, with the basalt caps on the large dunes in the Black Desert, and the chalk and limestone whiteness along with the strangely eroded formations in the White. We wrapped up the day under the Milky Way, eating in a Bedouin camp.
