Sahara - Algiers, Algeria

Sahara - Algiers, Algeria
Visiting the Casbah was a long-held dream, ever since I saw The Battle of Algiers in Film Aesthetics 101 when I was in art college. So it was a thrill and a privilege to be allowed in there, finally, where Ali La Pointe and three of his men had chosen death over surrender. The bad
news was that not only had our security detail grown to include six casbah SPS agents, but also a special uniformed-police unit with semiautomatic rifles was on hand at every street corner along our route. Their presence turned the overpopulated casbah into a ghost town. Once outside the old town, life was visibly more relaxed.
