The Desert

The Thar Desert. The night is imminent. The temperature drops rapidly as the sun disappears behind the dunes. It is so quiet out here. There are only the sounds of the camp: the fire being set, dinner being made, the protestations of the camels.

At night, I awake and the sky is so bright and littered with stars that I feel completely disoriented. For eyes opening upon darkness, it is like floating through space.
