“The Well at Aïn Salah” / A Memorable Fancy #083

“Not much water and dirty at that; may be enough for camels,” the traveler said. But he’d passed there the year before, and we were another two getting up the caravan, trudging sand under a bulbous fervent sun, finding our way by dry river scars.

Some where may be water.

Water! Let there be water, as large as the swollen sea.

[Aïn Salah, “Salah’s spring” in the Sahara Desert of southern Algeria, may be the world’s most isolated, desolate place. It is frequently reported as the day’s hottest spot on earth. – TK]
