Country: Sudan

Walking through the Bayuda Desert is tough. Temperatures have reached 46°C in the shade, so we take long breaks during the day.

We begin walking very early - waking before dawn - and break at noon to shade from the midday sun. The temperature is cooler by 3pm so we walk again until around 7pm.

My team are a god send - yesterday Awad and Ahmad taught me how to bake break in the desert!

Most days we look for desert wells amid the barren Martian landscape.
