The Sahara is the world's largest desert.  

Only a small part of the Sahara is fertile and it is here that corn, dates and other fruits grow. These parts are fed by underground rivers and oases. The Sahara can be an inspirational experience at night, with the air being crisp, clean and clear and the stars being so close you can almost touch them.

The Sahara desert stretches across much of North Africa covering over 9,000,000 square kilometers (roughly the size of the United States). In fact, the Sahara covers some 30% of the entire African continent. It is the hottest place in the world with summer temperatures that often exceeds 57 degrees Celsius. It has an annual rainfall of 0 - 25 millimeters and is very windy with windstorms sweeping the sand up to heights of 1000 meters and moving the sand dunes constantly.

The Sahara consists of one quarter volcanic mountains, one quarter sand, rocks and gravel-covered plains and small areas of vast permanent vegetation. The vegetation includes shrubs, grasses, and trees in the highland and in the oases along the river beds. Some of the plants are well adjusted to the climate since they sprout within three days of rain and sow their seeds within two weeks after that.

Animals in the Sahara are mainly Gerbils, Cape Hare, Deer, Weasels, Baboons, Jackals, Sand Foxes, Mongooses, Desert Hedgehogs and over 300 bird species.

With regards to posting of tourism problem areas everywhere throughout the world, Morocco is a spot that can't be let alone for the rundown. Found only a couple of hours of flight travel far from the real urban communities of the mainland of Europe, the city offers the same level of pleasure for sun-seekers, city-breakers and experience mates.

I have read in some books and articles that the Sahara desert has a very cold temperature from December to January. I am very curious of what the place looks like and I would love to explore the desert. I also want to meet people who live in the Sahara dessert and ask them how life is like in the desert. I'm sure it is a beautiful place to see.
