The sahara desert

"I always liked the desert. You sit on a sand dune, you see nothing, you hear nothing and, yet, something shines in silence. " - Antoine de saint Exupery 
The Sahara Desert, considered among the largest deserts in the world, is located in the northern part of Africa and is a belt that stretches from east to west, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea. The aridity of the Sahara is linked to its location in the tropical belts, where stationary conditions of high pressure persist that determine the almost absolute lack of rain and give absolute maximum temperatures that go beyond the 50 degrees. the Saharan fauna includes few animals able to bear the great heat and also very prolonged periods of drought, or to continuously migrate in search of the scarce desert vegetation
