Home in the desert

First day in the desert and already at 10.39 it’s up to about 40 degrees. Incredibly beautiful scenery. 8 of us per tent. 

First nights sleep not too bad. Annoyingly kept awake by the locals sat on the outside of the camp all night. At least it wasn’t cold. In fact not sure why I have a sleeping bag rated to -13 degrees!!

Spent the morning packing and re-packing as I have clearly brought far too much food!!! Bag now down to 8.8kgs on the back and another 1.8kgs on the front!

Sitting around now awaiting for the accreditation.
