There is a dream that all of us cherish, from Arabian Nights, living like Scheherazade or a Sultan. Of dainty Moroccon Tea Pots and Mint Tea and brightly colored courtyards and most of all, the camel rides in the desert. It’s mesmerizing, the rhythmic, undulating dunes of the desert, and the winds singing it age old songs. Camp for a night with the Bedouins under the millions of stars. The complete silence is something you will never experience anywhere else. It’s eerie but perfect.
