Dunes – Day 38 – Leyla Gashe

41 degrees today… I was given the word ‘Dunes’ from Leyla Gashe. 

At first we thought they were sand dunes. Their grainy rock-like skin and grassy spines are easy to mistake. But it was soon uncovered the sand-dragons had been bred by the government as coast guardians. I was terrified of them. It seemed very extreme. What if they bred and become uncontrollable?

As it turned out we did see huge infestations, but these new coast-guardians were not particularly territorial or aggressive. In fact their main skill was sandcastle construction. Ironically these intricate structures brought thousands of new people to our country.
