Time for a ride on a camel, I would say! Or, to be precisely, a Camelus dromedaris, which has but one blob on its back. A cross betwixt a lazy antilope and the Hunchback of the Notre Dame. I was lucky enough to ride on one that had just finished his dinner, and was a bit gaseous (what a sound it makes when it burps! Fascinating!). He was altogether very grumpy, but the camels my friends were riding really liked me, stroking my leg and nibbling on my shirt.
Here be sand dunes, albeit small ones. Still, a horizon of sand makes an awe-inspiring sight. Expecially at sunset! Very romantic indeed.
