Egypt - the desert

Egypt - Western Desert: the White Desert near Farafra.
As usual I can't read the postmark clearly but I think it says Maadi, and the date is 23 October 2009.

I have never seen any sort of desert in real life so this is something of a revelation to me.  It looks so architectural with the rock formations, almost like some old town.  According to the message, other parts consist purely of sand dunes, and that is how I imagine a desert.  The message continues:
"A lot of this sand gets blown into the cities by strong winds so everyone has a problem of dust in their homes."
I have a problem with dust in my home too, but I can't blame the desert!


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
