In the Oasis
We received word from Kempie today that the group has arrived at the Skoura Oasis where they will spend the next few days experiencing life in a palmeraie and engaging the local community in service activities. First up: building a pen for farm animals and harvesting feed for them from the fields. With desert on one side and an oasis on the other, all are basking in a special setting. This southern swing will climax with a pilgrimage to the Sahara next week. Stay tuned for more oases, more kasbah, odes to geology, and billowing sand dunes.
