As they traveled they recorded countless unexpected sights and incidents. In Niger a colourful, noisy crowd was entertained by two fat, prowling wrestlers. In Mauritania they watched dolphins drive a shoal of fish into the outspread nets of the waiting fishermen. Later they were blown up by a landmine, much to the annoyance of the local military. In almost every country, one or other of them was arrested. Every writer who has visited the Sahara has been stirred by the strange, timeless aura of a place where people live now as they have done for centuries.
