  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Sahara trip by WJB on 22 February 2009 2:54pm
Inspired by re-runs of Sahara series and v.keen to spend a night or several weeks under the desert stars - have heard of an extra bit of info that could be fun...BBC TV presenter Kate Humble is giving a talk in London 12 Mar 2009 called Footprints in the sand: the trip across the Sahara that changed my life. 1500km, 4 Mali salt traders and 40 camels...should be fun! May be Kate and Micheal should hook up and present together? www.eventelephant.com/katehumble

Ooo, thanks for letting us know, WJB. It sounds interesting. I will try and get there.

Just to say that I went to this talk last night. It completely changed her life and she got very emotional about it at the end. It was quite tough, having to endure sandstorms, etc. What a tough life the salt traders have.

Thanks, WJB, for bringing it to our attention. Did you go?
