Star Wars Canyon (Sidi Bouhlel)

We wake up at 5am to catch the sunrise over Matmata and then headed off to Tozeur via the Chott El Jerid. (Chott = Salt Lake)

Don't go into Algeria!

Finally, we arrive at the hotel. Four star with pool! (rather salty)

We arrive at the canyon of Sidi Bouhlel, the location for such films as Star Wars - The Phantom Menace & A New Hope, Raiders of the Lost Ark and The English Patient.

As we enter, Nick makes the claim that no rocks have moved since 1976. Chris kicks one to make a point!

The rock next to which R2-D2 is carted off by Jawas.

The location where Luke was attacked by Tusken Raiders.

After the attack, Luke was dumped here next to his Landspeeder and subsequently revived by old Ben Kenobi.

Our guide re-enacts the Tusken Raider sniper scene from The Phantom Menace.

The spot where Luke and Ben Kenobi stood looking out on the vista with Mos Eisley below - "You'll not find a more wretched hive of scum and villany"

This is where Saul Zaentz's crew built the fake "Cave of Swimmers" in The English Patient.

Alex and Jeremy struggle under the dead weight of their respective wives who died in tragic plane crashes.

Follow us on our crazy adventures to Darth Maul's lookout.
