El Ateuf, M’Zab Valley, Algeria.  An aerial view of what must be a remarkable town to walk through.  The streets are nonrectilinear and look to be only the width of a cart.  One feels like this is an "organic" town that has grown in place over the centuries without central planning.  It must be alternately chaotic and fascinating.
