    Excerpt from The Land of Veiled Women: Some Wanderings in Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco For days I crossed a land of drifting sand and scorching sun, and now I have reached the oasis, where water gurgles and palm-trees grow and the Arab town of Bou-Saada rests by a river. Bou-Saada means the Place of Happiness - and happy it is to the travel-racked man to let aching eyes fall on the green of the gardens. It is a mother-earth town of the drab tint of sun-baked bricks, the houses square-faced but bulging, and scarcely a window in the place. The thin, shadow-soaked streets are drunken. A bit of the town the French officials and traders have taken to themselves and made liveable. The native town is, in design and appearance, much what a child of four would make if given a barrow-load of mud! But the light - the light - the beautiful light! The blue Italian sky is leaden to this sky. A few artists know of Bou-Saada, and come for the light. I have seen a painter struggle for an hour to get a blue approaching the blue of the heaven hereabouts. He failed.
