  • It was more interesting than I was expecting. Nice to watch the Tuareg silversmiths working the traditional way using fire.  more »
  • A must see if you happen to be in Agadez! Very interesting also because the old houses are still inhabited by the original owners who have been owning them for generations. Nobody ever complains here....  more »
