That's me, Carolyn, in the orange backpack! I was drinking tea in Kabul at a colorful cafe when I read about the ancient art of Libya. So, I begged Jeff to change travel plans from Australia to, yes, you guessed it, Africa! Yahooo! Landed in Morocco and took a bus east to the Sahara where Jeff and I met a group of (you won't believe it) UC Davis archeology students studying the ANCIENT ART OF LIBYA! Sometimes the world is just that crazy. I would like to report that my camel bolted during a sandstorm but nothing that dramatic happened. We just walked around this sacred site and talked to really interesting Californians. One woman was actually a grandmother. She was the toughest one out there! I did get very thirsty and thought about those women in Africa who spend 6 hours of their day hauling water from dirty creeks...sometimes 50 pounds of water on their backs! I had a backpack and promise of water at home. I'm so lucky. More later! Carolyn + Jeff!
