It is actually rather common for a Desert to be freezing at night. A desert is only a desert because of a lack of presipitation. And of course the number one thing you need for that is clouds. The absence of clouds during the day gives the opportunity for 100% of the sunlight to hit the surface and warm it up for the whole day. At night the sun is gone, and as there are no clouds there is absolutley nothing keeping any of that heat here because the clouds bunce that heat back down to the surface as it tries to escape. Of course we all knew that anyways.

Great pictures, if its possible see if he can get any of a regular day in the city. Hope he gets back on time. Cheers
