The second day of our desertcrossing from Tidjikja to Chinquetti we didn't only see flat plains, but after a few hours we passed also wadis, black lava fields and beautifully scaped sanddunes. Just at the moment you could get the feeling that the desert can also be very boring, the landscape changes again.

Especially the sanddunes have very beautiful forms, created by the desert winds. I'm a real lover of this ''art of nature''. It's like you are in an immense open air museum.
