Today we entered Western Sahara (also known as Sahara Occidental), a territory occupied by Morocco. As the name implies we’re crossing the Sahara Desert on its western side. The Great Sahara Desert is the world’s hottest desert.
Furthermore the Sahara is almost as large as the entire United States. The road is leading us besides the Atlantic Ocean, passing numerous dune landscapes and gusty sandstorms are our biggest enemy while heading across this deserted region.
