how hot did you say it is?

We spent two full days in Ali Sabieh, a village about two hours outside Djibouti Town. Filmed a competition and interviews and the regular life of the girls in the running club. Overall, Lucy said she had a good time, but was utterly exhausted. Desert winds and searing temperature and not a lot of sleep have a way of sucking the life right out. I’m pretty sure we were all dehydrated and running on adrenaline.
