Summer in the Sahara

Can you believe there is such a thing as a "hot season" in the desert? It's three months where nobody can move between 11am and 4pm because the heat attacks like an ear-biting Mike Tyson. Yesterday I'd say it was well over 110 degrees. 
I've included pictures here of our women's day celebration that was on march 8th and a few other pictures from my trips to Atar in the northern part of the country. I jumped on a coal train with some friends to get from Atar to the coast. It was great except for when the train hit a camel in the middle of the night.
