  • "The name Sahara refers to the condition in the sand extraction pools, which are so deep that there is little life to be seen. The deep underwater bed consists of sand and that looks like a desert here." boswachtersblog.nl/rivierengebied/2018/03/12/genieten-op-een-bankje-in-de-oase-van-de-sahara/)
