They will cut you.

Don't be fooled by camels. Cute and adorable-looking on the outside, these guys like to snarl. And spit. And try to make it really clear that they don't actually want you to climb on their back so they can hoist you in the air and be led to and fro across the sandy desert, as you have romantic fantasies about a swarthy character in one of the Arabian Nights stories. But I asked my camel nicely, and he obliged.

Timeless

Eliminate the power lines, Nissan truck and cell phones and this scene must have repeated itself over and over again for thousands of years.
