Excerpt from Ghardaia, or Ninety Days Among the B'ni Mozab: Adventures in the Oasis of the Desert of Sahara
These men constituted the advance-guard of the caravan. Immediately behind them followed the equipage - train, consisting of a number of camels and dromedaries carrying... the baggage, together with some Mozabite women. On all journeys of this kind it is the duty of the women, at every halt for the night, to attend to the preparation of the evening meal.
The women accompanying our caravan were, however, far from interesting; and even if I had never before seen a Moorish or Arab female, the external appearance of these would have failed to excite my curiosity. They were packed among the furniture on the camels' backs, giving signs of life only when the animal's stopped to be unloaded for the night.
