7 Deserts is a video series from The African Attachment that follows ultrarunner Mina Guli as she runs 40 marathons across seven deserts on seven continents in seven weeks. Her goal: to raise awareness about global water shortages and the urgent need for us to reduce our water consumption. The first leg of the project kicked off in the Tabernas Desert of Spain, which lies within the province of Almería, the driest region of Europe.
