Kenza lives in Algiers, the capital of Algeria. She has a geography project to finish, so she’s off exploring. Whether alone or in the company of her best friend, she’s on the hunt for information across town: taking in the port, the Kasbah and downtown. Her sister agrees to help by taking her on a trip to visit a friend’s orchard in the countryside. But she’s about to make some very interesting new discoveries in the company of her grandmother, as the pair head off to Gardaia, at the edge of the Sahara Desert in the country’s south. It’s a unique and magical experience, and an opportunity for a series of firsts: from her first flight to taking a camel ride.
