Hello Gert,
You have a countryman who was quite recently in Algeria and posted a few pictures ... but meanwhile he has disappeared again.
A country you don't hear much about and I wonder if you can go there. The M'Zab is one of those very special areas in the world. That witness also your previous photos.
Here we see an attractive market scene on which the donkey bags provide the pleasant colours.
The extremely poor footwear of a number of men is striking.
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: safe?

Thank you Paul,
I think nowadays the northern parts of Algeria are fairly safe, except maybe for the Kabylian mountains. Possibly it is safe as far south as the M'Zab, which is a remarkable area, but beyond that I wouldn't feel safe. Although the Mozabites are very conservative and puritan I don't think they are likely to be radicalized militants.
Boa has been absent from TE a long time, but he will probably pop up again with new photos from Papua New Guinea or some other nice place.
Have a nice week,
