Stars in the Desert

The stars in the Sahara desert were the most surreal thing I have ever seen in my life. During my time in Morocco, I took a weekend trek out to the Sahara, where I rode a camel into the sand dunes for an hour to find a campsite. The lack of light pollution and open space out there allowed me to see the milky way, and constellations I never knew existed. I will never forget what that night sky looked like. Riding camels in the desert; a very touristy thing to do while in Morocco, however; one of the touristy things that is truly breath-taking and worth it.
