Video: Tracking Caravans In Niger

Thursday, August 27, 2009

Holly Morris
of Globe Trekker (whose mother wrote the biography that “Brian’s Song” was based) treks out into the deserts of Niger to track down one of the continent’s few remaining traveling caravans.

I like how at 2:11 when Holly and her film crew finally come upon the caravan after God knows how long of searching, the camel-laden group keeps nonchalantly continuing on, as if saying: “I don’t care who you are, do you see this desert? Do you realize how much further we have to go?”
