Sahara to be renamed? by mikeb on 30 November 2002 11:21am
After having a look at the book and the series maybe it
would be better renamed "Around the edge of the Sahara"??

I don't agree. Michael travels right through the Sahara. You might not know that the Sahara borders the Atlantic.

I doubt a rename for the series but I don't really care what it's called, I just want to read the book, why are you so slow library??? Newly aquired my butt. If you don't have it, say you don't have it! Sorry people...lol.

sorry Patrick but after seeing the last episode, last night, looking at Algeria/Libya/Tunisia I have to stand by my earlier comment...

One of the joys of watching a MP series is seeing him interact with other races and nationalities. I don't know what the exact population of "central" Sahara is, but I would hazard a guess that it isn't much. For my part, I believe MP got the balance right between the mystery and splendour of the Saharan Desert, and the diversity of cultures that live in and around it. Besides "Around the edge of the Sahara", doesn't have as good a ring to it :-)

For my part I thought it a great shame that more couldn't have been given over to places like Ahaggar (Hoggar if you like) in Algeria. Whilst security in the north is a hassle there are no problems in Ahaggar and it truly is an amazing place!

In reply to Patrick. Yes, I know as I have been lucky enough to have seen large chunks of the Sahara including the Atlantic coast.
I also have to agree with Giorgio. Ahaggar is beautiful. I'd recommend a visit to Ahaggar as an absolute must for ALL. One thing that people should realise is that the south of Algeria is quite accessible.
