My dear friends, this post is different. It is a little treat, especially for all those who speak Spanish. We have a very special lady in our group. Her name is Nubia. She is from Colombia. Spanish is her first language and she enjoys writing poems in that language. Nubia felt very moved by our desert experience and she expressed her feelings in a poem. She agreed to share it with all of us. Please press play and listen to the lovely Arabic music while you look at the pictures and read Nubia’s poem. Also, I would like to mention that the last five pictures were taken by our amazing and creative photographer: Sally Rogers. Thank you Sally for sharing your pictures.
En las arenas del Sahara
¡Oh Dios de este desierto
colmado de belleza!
Arena y más arena
formando paisajes, colores increíbles
que nuestros pinceles
no saben copiar.
¡Oh Dios cómo te veo
en medio de la arena!
aquí cuando piso las huellas se borran,
y sólo permanece la imagen, sin imagen
que guarda el corazón.
Allí tú resides sin límites, ni espacios
en este Sahara interior de mi ser.
Sólo veo estrellas en el firmamento,
soledad y silencio…
nada más… y Tú.

A big thank you to Nubia and Sally. This romantic and poetic way we have finished the Moroccan part of our trip.
