At this point in the trip, the remaining fans folks departed, leaving Ralph and I to head south into the desert. We took the Mad Max highway toward the Liwa Oasis, an ostensibly two-lane but functionally four-lane, straight swath of road through the sands of UAE. We paused at a couple of locations, first to fly the kite cam to great success, and then to take pictures at dunes that became ever larger toward the south. We did a lot of portraits on this day, for some reason - I guess for Ralph's book cover and for my mother (who complains there are never enough pictures of me on these trips - I more than made up for it this time).
