DAY SIXTY-FIVE Agadez is built entirely of mud and stands at a crossroads on the edge of the desert. We reached it in the middle of a hot and windy afternoon. It had been a very long and hot drive from our night campsite, on a well-made road which passed through the last of the Sahel country and out into the desert.

We booked into the Hotel de l’Air and were assigned the roof to sleep on.

A very tall Fulani¹ man came and offered us a goat for tea & I went with him on the back of his motorcycle to see it. It was scrawny but eatable so that night we dined on oven-cooked goat.

The night was spent on the roof was very comfortable and wonderfully cool.

¹The local tribe are called the Fulani
