Timia Transportation: 19 reviews and 19 photos

  The small camel caravan that made the cars stop?
by Bonobo2005

Next day, on Thursday, it took another 8 arduous hours before we reached Agadez. We stopped near the scenic valley with El Meki village and made several other, rather shameful photo stops.

At one of these several occasions we passed a small camel caravan and however I agree it was photogenic, the way the tourists behaved struck me. The cars halted, a dozen of white strangers jumped out and immediately took positions to shoot the family with their outrageous cameras. No greetings, no asking for permission.

Some minutes later we left again in the dust, leaving the perplexed family behind with some small presents.
