Rissani Local Customs: 4 reviews and 11 photos
From Rissani we made a trip into the black desert between Erfoud and Erg Chebbi. At some places we saw nomad dwellings at the almost empty plains. We visited one of the families and were allowed to look around to get a glimpse of the hard and basic life they live.
We could have a look in the 'store house' with lots of plastic containers for fetching water, I don't know from how far. The daughter showed us the kitchen (picture 3). We saw also the weaving loom (picture 5), where they make carpets which will be sold at a cooperative shop. At the ceiling above the loom we saw dried meat and skin (picture 4). The daughter showed us also the place with the baby goats who didn't join the small herd yet.
And of course we were invited in the nomad tent (picture 2) for a nice welcome tea (picture 1).
