Algeria tour Dec.1999/Jan.2000

Hallo and welcome to some photos of this tour.!

This tour was from Germany, to Austria, Italy, across Tunisia,

to Algeria. We entered Algeria near Tozeur and went down to Djanet

but must turn back only 200km before Djanet at Chrismas eve 1999.

We went back close to the Libyan border and reached Tunisia

where we left it 3 weeks ago.

The tour was about 9000km in 4 weeks

The camrea was a Canon EOS 300 with a Tamron 28-200 and Tokina 19-35.

I'll not write a whole tour-story for this tour. But I'll show you
All following photos are from this tour. I had 40 slide films and selected only some nice photos...

We called it the silver tree, but don't know what it real is.

Only 3440km to Kairo, or just 680km to Tripolis. International sign.

The real inhabitants of the desert, very often found in Algeria.

For what they need this? They don't have to protect fruit and vegetables in the desert.

I hope it will be strong enough.

I must look for new and fresh water, but am to stupid to use the source correctly.

Do you see the flying pancake?.
