After a long and arduous journey we made to Bahareya. After changing vehicles we ventured forth into the desert. Over the duration of the trip, we were treated to the unique delights of the once volcanic black desert, only to be contrasted by the white limestone, chalk desert the following day (formerly a sea bed). The pupils experienced what most likely was their first camping trip, including a taste of traditional Bedouin cuisine under the stars.
