"Wellcome". An armed Tabou driver stands outside an old restaurant in the former tourist destination of the Ubari lakes in the Sahara of Libya, an area that is now a ghost town since the revolution. The borders and the Sahara security are mostly manned by the Tabou tribe who have a history of navigating the sand seas by the stars, although nowadays GPS is slightly more reliable. The Tabou are known warriors with a history that spans thousands of years.
The beautiful baron, empty desert, with a view of Libya, Algeria and Tunisia. Crazy to think that imaginary lines cut through these sands. These borders create trade for many, dealing or smuggling fruit, vegetables, alcohol, drugs, arms and people. Brigades battling to take control of the borders want to guard them, but also to benefit from them. The power of imaginary lines.
