Top contributor Bbloss put this video together from his trip to the North African country Tunisia.  No matter how many drone videos you've seen, you probably haven't seen many from a camel-borne pilot.  That's what you'll get here; most of the video was shot riding a (two hump) camel on the Mediterranean coastline, where the Sahara desert goes right up to the sea.  The video wraps up with a beautiful sunset shot of a hilltop town somewhere in the vast desert.
