I stood outside my tent after waking up from a night in the desert and noticed the camp staff scurrying about with tables and chairs. They were moving everything from the dining tent to a nearby sand dune. Unlike previous mornings when the air was a bit cold and breezy, today was warmer and still. It was a spectacular day to eat al fresco.
When the desert sky is cloudless, the sunrise and sunsets seem faster, as there are no clouds to catch and prolong the glow. Still, it is an amazing sight to see the yellow-orange glow just before the round edge of the sun pops over the horizon. Once the sun was fully risen, breakfast treats appeared. Besides coffee, my faves were hard boiled eggs and Moroccan bread with fig jam. What a great way to start the day!
