There is a town about an hour give or take away from here, in the opposite direction of going to the city of Ghardaia named Zelfana.
Zelfana is a quiet little town, kinda artsy and has date farms. In fact, I have another post of Zelfana somewhere on here. As we were driving we ran across some camels hanging out with their Shepard, a lonely donkey staring blankly at the cars passing by him... right in the middle of the road, a group men traveling between cities on their camels and a horse eating alone. There is a place where you can stop and look at and or buy dessert roses, they also have couple of camels hanging out.
Zelfana was a French colony, there were no Arabs here until after they, meaning the French were booted back to France. They left some really nice architecture however and planted lots of trees where as the Arabs here don't do much of that until now.
