Algeria in the media

    Impressions from Algeria (Sunday Telegraph)

    Our children gazed in awe at the figure before them. The tightly wound indigo turban was drawn closely across the face of the wall Tuareg warrior leaning heavily on his slim iron spear. His contrasting pale blue robe was clinched firmly around his waist, by a belt securing a short hand-tooled Sudanese sward in a red leather scabbard. His traditional dress is displayed for the tourists visiting Père de Foucald hermitage at Aseekrem, high in the shattered moonscape mountains of the Saharan Hogger range, near Tamanrasset. The desert journey to reach this fantastic landscape is a scenic switchback of flat stony plains, and truck-traping “fech-fech” sand basins, but the tribulations of the trail pale beside the exquisite, alluring dunes. Very high, and often crowned with a plume of wind-driven sand, they are a photographer’s paradise at dusk and swan when the swirling golden crests are etched with dark shoadows beneath a cold azure sky.
