Photographer's Note

In September 1975 I made a tour of Algeria, my first "light" taste of Africa.
I headed straight south from Algiers on the Mediterranean coast, spent a few days in the M'Zab valley 500 km south, and then proceeded another 300 km into the Sahara to the small oasis town of El Goléa.
My memories are vague, but I recall it as a very pleasant place, although extremely hot. There were the ruins of a 1.000 years old fortress, several white tombs – such as the one on this picture _ of revered Muslim holy men, and hundreds of thousands of date palms.
This was scanned from a Kodchrome slide.
