It's been really a long time since I received my first postcard from Algeria, so this one that reached me just this morning came as a nice refreshment. It shows Tuareg (also spelled Twareg or Touareg) people, a Berber people with a traditionally nomadic pastoralist lifestyle. They are the principal inhabitants of the Saharan interior of North Africa (mostly Niger, Mali and Algeria). They have their own language as well with about 1.2 million speakers. Many many thanks go to Bouchra for this wonderful postcards :)
