Sahara - Algiers, Algeria

Sahara - Algiers, Algeria
The terraces of Alger La Blanche, the white city modelled on Marseille in France, reflected in the glass front of the café at Central Station.
Algiers was, in many ways, the most interesting city we visited on the journey. It was also an impossible place to work in. With a fatwah out on all foreigners, we were constantly surrounded by SPS (Service de Protection Spéciale) agents, and were warned in no uncertain terms never to point a camera in their direction. Since they were all over us like cheap suits, the wide-angle lens was basically made obsolete, and I was reduced to hunting with the telephoto, very much like on a safari.
