Sao: the bride of the desert. In the 1970s, the Chinese writer and traveler Sanmao had a passionate love story with the Spanish diver José María Quero. They traveled to the Spanish Sahara where Sanmao captured his everyday experiences in the book Cuentos del Sahara, a best-selling phenomenon in Taiwan and China. Sanmao became an icon of an independent woman and the protagonist of a life tinged with legend where love, adventure, literature and tragedy are mixed.
