You, going threw my univers, land often forgotten, I wish I could introduce you in direct contact with my civilization, and to make you aware with my cultural prints.

In the way of old inscriptions, there are a few very known poems, inTifinagh writting, from the poetess touareg Dassene oult Themma :

I always want and for always, ta share my culture, with the whole world, as I wish to, you made us share yours.
At every bivouac, unavoidable « tea of the desert » will be the opportunity of the exchanges. Every guest at this ceremony must drink three glasses, the fisrt one is bitter like death, the second one soft like life, and the third one sweet like love.
For us, the touaregs it won't be the contents of the glass, which will import, but the quality of the conversation which will take place around the fire.
